9780758242501: Two The Hard Way

Coming up in the inner city, Kwame and Romeo Braxton never had anyone except their Nana and each other. So when big brother Kwame caught two years for doing nothing but keeping the wrong kind of friends, their lives were turned upside down. And things are about to get shaken up one more time. . .

Romeo is seventeen and the star quarterback for the Tucker Tigers. He gets all the attention he can handle from the honeys--and the big-time college football programs. Deciding where to take a scholarship should be Romeo's biggest problem, but these days it's the last thing on his mind. . .

Not only is Kwame finally getting out of jail, their absentee mother Pearl is back on the scene, and Rome's girl Ngiai says she's ready to get serious. Oh, and a couple of thugs beat Pearl nearly to death and wrecked Nana's crib.

With everything in their lives out of control, Kwame and Rome are at a serious crossroads. Now they'll have to decide who's really got their backs, and what kind of future they're ready to step up to. . .

"Gritty, realistic, and unforgettable, Travis Hunter knows the urban teen scene." --Ni-Ni Simone, author of Teenage Love Affair

About the Author:

Travis Hunter is the founder of the Hearts of Men Foundation, through which he mentors underprivileged children. He is also the author of eight novels for adults: The Hearts of Men, Married But Still Looking, Trouble Man, A One Woman Man, Something to Die For, A Family Sin, and Dark Child. Hunter graduated from Georgia State University with a bachelor’s in Psychology and is a veteran of the U.S. Army. Hunter lives in a suburb of Atlanta with his son Rashaad.

From Booklist:

Honor student and star quarterback Romeo has big college plans, but can he survive the dangerous streets of the Atlanta projects where he lives? His big brother, Kwame, 19, is released from prison after serving two years for something he did not do, and he is determined to help his community and keep Romeo out of trouble. Told in the alternating first-person narratives of the two close brothers, Hunter’s debut YA novel about family, friends, lovers, and official corruption moves quickly, with dialogue that is angry, hilarious, heartbreaking, and mean (no invective, though). The often violent action builds to a stormy climax with shoot-outs, car crashes, and dramatic turnarounds, but it is the tender, personal elements that are unforgettable: the brothers’ love for Nana, who raised them; Romeo’s relationship with his beautiful girlfriend, Ngiai, who is not ready for sex. With discussion questions at the end, the intense contemporary drama is sure to engage teens. Grades 10-12. --Hazel Rochman
