“Original in theme and inspirational in tone and content.” — Booklist
From a Coretta Scott King Author Award Honor winner comes a street smart tale about a displaced teen who learns to defend what’s right — the Cowboy Way. Inspired by the little known urban riders of Philly and Brooklyn, this compelling tale of latter day cowboy justice champions a world where your friends always have your back, especially when the chips are down.
