Set in Queens, New York, in the early '70s, the Odd Squad tells a story of friendship challenged by peer pressure, prejudice and the allure of sex and drugs. The interracial romance between Frankie and Laura is threatened by a neighborhood more ready to explode from hate than be redeemed by love.

Nobody writes dialogue as crisp and edgy as Joe Benevento. Put this on your reading list...definitely a must-read. -- Virgil Suarez, author of Havana Thursdays

This novel should be taught in every high school...highly recommended. -- Roundtable Review
