Overview


The acclaimed author of TYRELL and KENDRA returns to PUSH to continue Tyrell's astonishing story.

Tyrell's father is just out of jail, and Tyrell doesn't know how to deal with that. It's bad enough that his brother Troy is in foster care and that his mother is no help whatsoever. Now there's another thing up in his face, just when he's trying to settle down. Tyrell's father has plans of his own, and doesn't seem to care whether or not Tyrell wants to go along with them. Tyrell can see the crash that's coming -- with his dad, with the rest of his family, with the girls he's seeing -- but he's not sure he can stop it. Or if he even wants to.

Coe Booth has been one of my very favorite storytellers ever since I read Tyrell. Kendra also was magnificent. Bronxwood blew me away. Every word coming from Tyrell's mind rings so true. I could be walking in my neighborhood, hearing 16-yr old kids talk. Coe never judges her characters. She lets them be who they are. She never preaches or tries to teach a lesson. She lets you decide for yourself whether or not the characters are on the right track. Whether or not you "like" what the characters are up to, you love them. You feel for them in such an immediate way. You laugh with them a lot too--the humor is so great, relayed by a wise soul of a writer. Coe's ear for dialogue, her characters' voices--all remarkable. And she gives the characters a fast-placed plot to live in. Bronxwood is devastatingly awesome, an absolutely phenomenal read. I loved this book. -Paul Griffin, NYC, 10-15-2011

Tyrell is back, and is still trying to keep it together for his family and his friends. But Dad gets out of jail, and he wants Tyrell to step back and let him deal with things. Past experience doesn't predict future results, but Tyrell doesn't believe that Dad will be around long enough to make things right, and the man's violent tendencies are bound to mess things up.
