For Lafayette and his brothers, the challenges of growing up in New York City are compounded by the facts that they’ve lost their parents and it’s up to eldest brother Ty’ree to support the boys, and middle brother Charlie has just returned home from a correctional facility.

Lafayette loves his brothers and would do anything if they could face the world as a team. But even though Ty’ree cares, he’s just so busy with work and responsibility. And Charlie’s changed so much that his former affection for his little brother has turned to open hostility.

Now, as Lafayette approaches 13, he needs the guidance and answers only his brothers can give him. The events of one dramatic weekend force the boys to make the choice to be there for each other—to really see each other—or to give in to the pain and problems of every day.

    " This is one of those rare cases in which the show/movie is better than the book. I loved the mini series on The N & was very excited to read the book but felt left down. It's definitely good but not as good as I thought the show was. "

    " This book is about 3 brothers who lost there parents and have to find a way to stay together. they have to deal with social workers their aunt who want to watch over them and their brother charlie always getting into trouble. I like this book becaus it shows that when you feel like you don't have anybody to count on their will always be family. the lesson i think this book is trying to show is that when you stick together you will alsways see the light at the end of the tunnel.I would recommend this book to people who like reading about family, friendship,and about life.
