Ray and Jose have been raised in a foster home together and are now living on the streets. They survive by stealing cars and selling them to a chop shop. So much slang and profanity it was difficult to follow the story. There is a minor love story where the boy who really likes the girl, gives her up to his friend, who ends up going to jail. A disappointing story--if all one has to do is use street language to get an urban novel published, the author did everything right. Not recommended.
