Book Review: Dodgers

Dodgers by Bill Beverly // What drew me to this book was the list of awards its collected. Normally, I wouldn't reach for a book about LA gang members traveling the country in search of a witness they've been ordered to murder. Doesn't seem like my kind of book...although, it IS a suspense story line, so that's a lot more my style than a romance book would be.

The main character of this book is a boy named East. He grew up in LA, drafted into a gang by his uncle. Within the first twenty-five pages of the book, East is off to start his journey to Wisconsin with other teenagers. He's never traveled outside of "The Boxes," a neighborhood in LA, and the journey stuns and changes him. Despite the crimes they commit, they are strangely likable characters.

The writing style was unique, and I can certainly understand why it won so many awards. Please note that this isn't a Christian novel.
