Babylon Boyz

Babylon Boyz

Illustrated by: Leonid Gore
For Ages: 12 and up
For fourteen-year-old Dante and his posse, life in Babylon isn't about making choices but about dodging blows. Dante needs a heart operation, Pook can't afford college, let alone medical school, and Wyatt's going to need more than his sense of humor to squeeze through life. So when the boys find a suitcase full of cocaine, they face an excruciating decision. Selling the coke means escape. But it also means adding to the crack epidemic that has already destroyed their community.
Set on the rough streets of a modern-day Babylon, this is the story of three best friends who are about to learn that choices don't necessarily guarantee freedom.
