Read by Arnell Powell, Simone Cook, James Shippy.
Set in the town of Milton, the story follows young Andre Battel from age eight through his teenage years as he grows away from his Jamaican family, discovers genuine prowess on the basketball court, and eventually falls into a routine of dealing drugs for the local street gang. The story is told primarily through Andre's voice. What emerges is a rich portrait of a black family, a black community, and one young boy/man poised between youthful innocence and ambiguous experience.
