Every once in a while, a story comes along that simply must be told - even though it tears you apart. Yummy, by G. Neri, is that story. . . . Yummy is a life lesson on the evils of gang-banging, the importance of responsible parenting, and the necessity of a society’s care and concern for people of all races and socioeconomic statuses–especially impressionable little children. Illustrator Randy DuBurke’s haunting ink sketches are both tragic and beautiful, and serve to etch little Yummy’s short life firmly into the reader’s mind. . . . you will be glad you read the story of Robert “Yummy” Sandifer, if only to help society make certain that a tragedy of this proportion never, ever happens again. —Young Adult Books Central
