…I liked the format the author chose–a graphic novel. It was gritty and dark but not too much so. Older tweens will be attracted to its cover with its display of the intent glare of a young boy peeking over the title and its graphic novel genre. The title will also catch their attention because it sounds current and gangster-like.

I would recommend this book to older tweens and teens even though the character and the narrator are both eleven. It has some very disturbing topics–like abandonment, parents in jail, bullying, and brutality, which it handles well. This would be a great book to discuss with friends and family.
