Publisher's Summary

Philadelphia streets were never silent. Gang wars on corners, screeching cars on avenues, and squealing steel trolley tires on tracks kept you alert for the next confrontation. Philadelphia playgrounds were sometimes silent. These were sanctuaries where you confronted your deepest memories. These were places packed with people, but on a summer's midday, they were virtually empty. Streets made habitable again by the actions of a few good men.

A deep message conveyed !

Any additional comments?

"I got the review copy from the author in exchange of honest review."

A good pick for fast paced narration lovers. A 70’s based story plot that revolved around loads of boyish liking elements. I at times had a feel that I should stop reading this book (oops!! Listening actually ), since it had some dark parts on its way. But ultimately my thoughts were changed, when I came across one of the blog’s which shared the author’s views on writing such a work. It made me realize that this was the author’s style of handling his writing, in a way that it makes people think and feel the message to be conveyed. For a reader like me, who has stopped reading things about racism after school days, this work indeed brought back all those topics into read again. It also gave the reader an idea about the state of mind and belief of the people who faced all these discriminations. But no wonder, you should have a good amount of patience if you want to get the entire message which the author is sharing.
