The main character and his friend both are on drugs and they get abandoned by the main character's (Mann and Kee Lee) dad. So they have to live on their own. They try to go to Kee- Lees aunts house but she just makes them drink liquor and steal $.
The kids are 12 and they smoke. They have mean cousins that make them steal money and paint the house. Mann goes to his horse stable and lives in the shed. The reason that this book is called Bang is because the town that they live in is full of crimminals that shoot people. I love this book because the boys must find their way home. This book is very disturbing but funny. (=
