Description

Six-feet-tall, fourteen-year-old Young Junius sets out to find his brother's killer in a cluster of Boston's low-income housing towers—prime drug-dealing territory. After committing a shooting to protect his friend, Junius finds himself with fifty dollars and instructions to run, but, shocked by the violence that he's created yet determined to see its consequences through, he refuses.
