This national best-seller chronicles the true story of two brothers coming of age in the Henry Horner public housing project in Chicago over a two-year period. Lafeyette and Pharoah Rivers are eleven and nine years old when the story begins in the summer of 1987. Living with their mother and six siblings, they struggle to survive gun battles, gang influences, overzealous police officers, and overburdened and mismanaged bureaucracies.
Through extensive research, Kotlowitz brings us this classic rendering of growing up in the 'jects', selected by the New York Public Library as one of the 150 most important books of the twentieth century.
