It's about problems that real teenagers go through at some point in their teen age lives.
I liked this book alot becuase Paul Langan wrote it really good. Getting in all the real things that teenagers go through. Ecspecially Poor families that live in the projects. He writes about, love, friendship, Deaths, shootings, stabbings... stuff that soem people go through daily. All in all i suggest all teenagers to read this series it helps alot, knowing that other people are going through soem of the smae problems. And it gives pretty goo advice.
