It is the routines that Eddie J. finds so comfortable in his life. Hanging out with his crew, winning dance battles, helping around the house…a life style that would bring comfort to any seventh grade boy trying to find his way in the streets of Chicago. Still, it’s these same routines that put him in one of the biggest challenges he has to face. In one week, one day, and a few seconds, Eddie J. finds himself in a predicament never foreseen. The tale of this one boy introduces the reader to characters that you find in your everyday world, but it is his battles that have you gripping onto the edge waiting to discover the fate of another black boy in the streets. His memoir is the untold story of many ebony kings who fall to become what the world knows as a statistic.
