Publisher Description:
One night while their mom's at work, ten-year-old James and his six-year-old brother, Isaac, leave their house to meet the K-Bones, a group of guys who hang out and do cool stuff. James is ready to prove he's cool enough to be in with them, but he soon learns that the K-Bones are not just an innocent club--they're a gang that steals, tags freeway signs, and even plans to buy a gun. After a dangerous confrontation with a crew of older boys, James realizes that he's put Isaac in danger, and knows that if he finds the courage to walk away, Isaac will follow.
