124 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.3in.Speedy spent early teen years playing around Race Brook Village in Pineville, Delaware. He loved riding his tricycle and enjoyed roller-skating with cheerful kids in the housing projects. His mother and father were somewhat poor, laboring three jobs just to keep food on the table and a roof over their head. As Speedy grew older, he despised eating roast beef weekly in the household and packing mayonnaise sandwiches everyday for school lunch. He started something new and different at age fourteen . . . broke into unoccupied apartments and stole valuables and goods that belonged to other tenants!Before Speedy reached the tender age of fifteen, he roamed all over the projects as one of the biggest little thieves of Race Brook Village. But he did not act alone, he had a small running partner-in-crime. And as Speedy grew older, he culminated into one of the worst individuals that anyone could imagine. Stealing and robbing, drug dealing, homelessness, drug addictions, incarceration, alcoholism-all this portrayed his life as completely hopeless. Speedy searches for help, but seemingly, nothing can cure his addictive mind. Strung-out on drugs and alcohol, somehow, some way, he has to quit getting high . . . or prepare to die!
