The anticipated return to Tyrell's story, now in paperback!

Tyrell's father is just out of jail, and Tyrell doesn't know how to deal with that. It's bad enough that his brother Troy is in foster care and that his mother is no help whatsoever. Now there's another thing up in his face, just when he's trying to settle down. Tyrell's father has plans of his own, and doesn't seem to care whether or not Tyrell wants to go along with them. Tyrell can see the crash that's coming -- with his dad, with the rest of his family, with the girls he's seeing -- but he's not sure he can stop it. Or if he even wants to.

“[A] gritty and gripping first novel.” – The New York Times Book Review

Praise for Bronxwood:

"Readers who have been with Tyrell from the beginning as well as those meeting him for the first time will be utterly invested in his future." - Kirkus Reviews

"Hope rings true through Tyrell’s sense of survival and responsibility as he cares for his brother, his friends, and his girl." - Booklist

"Action scenes combine with interpersonal exchanges to keep the pace moving forward at a lightning speed, but Booth never sacrifices the street-infused dialogue and emotional authenticity that characterize her works. She has created a compelling tale of a teen still trying to make the right choices despite the painful consequences." - School Library Journal
