With a drug deal gone bad, Lil J needs to make some decisions in his life, and he may have just stumbled upon some help.
I was surprised to find that the core of this book was magical realism. It was a short book, so I was fine with that (not a fan of magical realism), but more importantly, it was an interesting way to present the topic/issues in a realistic manner. The story (especially the ending) can certainly be a portal to conversation for those that can relate.
