From the Publisher:
In jail after being charged with his father's murder, seventeen-year-old Antonio finds his love with sixteen-year-old Natasha tested and engages in a desperate ten-year correspondence with her from behind bars, during which both turn to each other at times of trial. A first novel.
Annotation:
This touching tale is told entirely in letters between a teenage girl in Harlem and her boyfriend, who has been sent "upstate" to prison for killing his father. His actual guilt is in dispute, but the feeling between Antonio and Natasha is strong and passionate, and it endures over a 10-year period despite their very different preoccupations: Antonio's attempts simply to survive in the brutal atmosphere of prison, and Natasha's need to engage with the world.

Praise

Publishers Weekly
"The letters are fluent, caidid and colloquial....[T]his is a moving, uplifting story of love and hope in the face of adversity." 11/22/2004
