About This Book
The acclaimed author of Tyrell and Kendra returns to the "Push" series to continue Tyrell's astonishing story.
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 compelling tale of a teen still trying to make the right choices despite the painful consequences.” — School Library Journal
“The author captures the dangers of inner-city life as readers follow a teen trying desperately to be a man.” — Kirkus Reviews
“With the same heartbreak and honesty as the widely acclaimed Tyrell, this fast-paced sequel continues the title teen’s immediate first-person narrative of his struggle in the ‘hood.” — Booklist
