Thirteen-year-old Butterball doesn’t have much going for him. He’s teased about his weight. He hates the Long Island suburb his mom moved them to so she could go to nursing school and start her life over. He wishes he still lived with his dad in New York City—where there’s always something happening, even if his dad doesn’t have much time for him.

Still, that’s not why he beat up Maurice on the playground.

Now his school is forcing him to talk to some out-of-touch lady therapist, as though she could ever fix him—as though she could ever figure out the truth. No, Butterball’s lips are sealed about what happened that day. But some tales can’t help being told. And this is one of them.

Inspired by 50 Cent’s own adolescence, Playground is a hard-hitting and inspirational story of the redemption of a bully.

    " I love 50 Cent and his music. I will admit, I did not expect much from this book, as I thought "How does a rap artist go from writing songs to writing a book?" but 50 Cent pulled it off. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Melissa | 2/11/2014

    " Interesting. Wraps up a little too neatly, but I don't disagree with the message that bullies can be redeemed. Good for 50 Cent for using his celebrity in this way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Ms. B | 2/9/2014

    " An engaging, quick read! Especially good for readers looking for stories about bullying or characters who like to make movies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Pamela | 1/29/2014

    " It's unfortunate the main character has such a foul mouth; still, Butterball's voice, actions and frustrations make him a believable character. Bullying is a hot topic in schools & 50 cent brings "street cred" to students. "
