    Now a feature film, Concrete Cowboy, starring Idris Elba

    "Original in theme and inspirational in tone and content." — Booklist

    From a Coretta Scott King Author Award Honor winner comes a street- smart tale about a displaced teen who learns to defend what’s right — the Cowboy Way. Inspired by the little- known urban riders of Philly and Brooklyn, this compelling tale of latter- day cowboy justice champions a world where your friends always have your back, especially when the chips are down.
