The ema,o viewpoints create interesting perspectives on the story, but with so little space devoted to each speaker, characterizations sometimes feel superficial. But, because of how much emotions are shown from the reader you can tell that there is a lot to get out of this book.

I was interesting in so many ways and I got so attach to all the characters that at then end it felt like I knew exactly how they all felt. Monterey, Eddie and Jamal are her friends. I thought it was sad at the end, through the book they would give hints of how she went to another place. Why do such disproportionate numbers of young urban males become members of gangs, obtain firearms, and end up murdering each other and innocent bystanders on a daily basis?

Normally, I find books WoooooWwwwwww. The reader doesn’t know how to feel some of the time, if there is something sad because your still getting through what just happened.

Booklist Review

She was the one who understood the burden of Eddie’s family. Normally, I find books with numerous POV to be annoying, especially if the author doesn’t do it right but thank God Ms. There are huge problems with not even the president wanting to face. Her friends describe her as beautiful. The different point of views added a lot of suspense also.


Want to Read saving…. In fact, the only obscenity here is that Brenda Woods can write such a heartbreaking story and have it ring so utterly true in America. Life lessons are told in this story, same as stories that were suppose to be fake. Savannah is the miserable rich girl, creating drama in hopes of gaining the attention she’s denied at home.

Eddie–one of several characters with an older sibling behind bars–is desperately clawing his way through high school in hopes of fleeing to a college Anywhere Else in order to escape the fate that awaits so many young brothers who remain behind. Was very sad but kept you hooked. Jul 10, Mrs. Overal I would recomend this book to some else since it is just one of those books that will never bore you.
