Book Information

Eddie and Marcus are best friends and the stars of the high school basketball team. They alternate voices in the telling of this story. The two boys are tired of being poor so they start robbing people and when Marcus gets caught, he doesn’t tell Eddie. He faces the consequences on his own. When Eddie gets caught, he gets a high priced lawyer to get him off while Marcus goes to prison. Is the difference race?
