I loved this book. It is so relatable. I love how Uncle Henry states in the book that "Blood is thicker than anything else."
I give this story 4 & 1/2 stars. It's emotional but it explains the quote "Sometimes you have to go through the bad to get to the good."
In the beginning of the summer, Hakeem and his family move to Detroit. After sharing a room with his cousin for a while, Hakeem notices that him and his friends plan to sneak out in the middle of the night.
