(BULLY) 2 boys in Harlem. One is African American the other Spanish, they deal with the troubles that come their way. Twig is Manuel and he's a distance runner, Darius the writer. Enjoyed it how it showcased how you can be more than just your race. Reads like it was taken from teenagers in any larger city. Some language. Really got into the reflections of life. For example, "....when the pain comes, he is ready to fight it, to overcome it. What do I do when the pain comes?" Young black and Spanish might find their voice in this book.
