Synopsis: In Bed Stuy, New York, a small misunderstanding can escalate into having a price on your head—even if you’re totally clean. This gritty, triumphant debut that Publishers Weekly calls “a funny and rewarding read” captures the heart and the hardship of life for an urban teen.

A lot of the stuff that gives my neighborhood a bad name, I don’t really mess with. The guns and drugs and all that, not really my thing.

Nah, not his thing. Ali’s got enough going on, between school and boxing and helping out at home. His best friend Noodles, though. Now there’s a dude looking for trouble—and, somehow, it’s always Ali around to pick up the pieces. But, hey, a guy’s gotta look out for his boys, right? Besides, it’s all small potatoes; it’s not like anyone’s getting hurt.

And then there’s Needles. Needles is Noodles’s brother. He’s got a syndrome, and gets these ticks and blurts out the wildest, craziest things. It’s cool, though: everyone on their street knows he doesn’t mean anything by it.

Yeah, it’s cool...until Ali and Noodles and Needles find themselves somewhere they never expected to be...somewhere they never should've been—where the people aren’t so friendly, and even less forgiving.

About the Author: Jason Reynolds is crazy. About stories.

Book Description Atheneum Books For Young Readers, 2015. Taschenbuch. Book Condition: Gebraucht. Gebraucht - Sehr gut Leichte Lagerspuren - Ali hat sich fast sechzehn Jahre von allem Ärger und den miesen Typen in seiner Gegend, Brooklyn, ferngehalten. Schon aus Angst vor seiner Mutter, die, was den Umgang ihres Sohnes betrifft, die Null-Toleranz-Politik vertritt. Dann ergibt sich die Gelegenheit, mit seinem Freund Noodles und dessen Bruder Needles nicht nur so richtig cool zu sein, sondern auch mit den großen Jungs zu spielen. Gefährlich, wenn man selbst jedem Streit aus dem Weg geht, der Freund nur eine Riesenklappe, aber sonst nicht viel hat, und der dritte durch sein Tourette-Syndrom unberechenbar ist, sobald er sein Strickzeug nicht parat hat. 256 pp. Englisch.
