From Publishers Weekly
The experiences of a group of Harlem teenagers come alive through Myers's use of their rhythmic vernacular. Mouse, 14, spends the summer playing basketball, preparing for a dance contest and--together with his pals--searching for a gangster's hidden loot with the help of a hot-headed kid and an ancient former gang member. But Mouse also has more mundane concerns: his new girlfriend is trying to come between him and his best friend, and Mouse's father, who deserted Mouse and his mother, has suddenly returned. Imbued by Myers with depth, credibility and a keen sense of humor, Mouse lends a strong narrative voice to this highly entertaining novel, which vividly captures the sights and sounds of a Harlem summer. Ages 10-14.

Got this book for my fourteen year old daughter. She loved it and told me all about it.
