Book Preview


Trevor's mother was dead set against Vanessa Allen. Trevor knew the old angry frown would come quickly if she learned that Trevor had been seeing Vanessa behind her back. Even his brother Tommy thought the high school dropout was bad news. But Trevor was almost a man, and he wasn't listening to everyone's warnings. 

Series Description

Written for young adults, the Urban Underground series confronts issues that are of great importance to teens, such as friendship, loyalty, drugs, gangs, abuse, urban blight, bullies, and self-esteem to name a few. More than entertainment, these books can be a powerful learning and coping tool when a struggling reader connects with credible characters and a compelling storyline. The highly readable style and mature topics will appeal to young adult readers of both sexes and encourage them to finish each novel.

These paperback books feel and look like a regular trade edition so that readers feel confident in reading the books in public.
