Description: A novel about the gangsta rap music scene and three young boys who are caught up in it from the hugely popular Benjamin Zepahaniah.
Synopsis: Ray has given up school. He sees no point in education and despises authority. And then he has no choice about school as he is excluded. But Ray also has troubles at home, which means he has nowhere to stay and ends up sleeping in the local record shop, owned by his friend Marga Man. Ray and his friends attend a Social Exclusion Project which means they can develop their music skills. Marga Man gets a record deal for them, and they become local heroes. But another rap band takes a dislike to Ray's music and gang warfare is the result...Based on Benjamin's own troubled experience of school and the music business, his passionate, immediate voice will appeal to all his fans.
