Tyrell is about a teen living a hard life in the projects. Tyrell is just trying to make it out alive. He feels like the weight of the world is on his shoulders. His mother doesn’t act right, father isn’t there, his girlfriend wants too much and his brother is only a kid. This book is very interesting its won the Los Angeles times book prize.

Tyrell is struggling he has no money and no stable home. Just a youngster trying to make it out. Trying to help his mom out with what he can. Tyrell has the mind of a grown man he tries everything to get money for him and his family. For example, he does something that can either get him killed or in jail.

I recommend this book a lot, it is mind blowing. This book has taught me to not believe everything that is told. If your really into this book Bronxwood is the next book.
