This is a novel set in Newark, New Jersey. These are some original copies of the book from the author. I've edited it since then, but these are from before that. This is a really good book. Here's a description that I wrote:
This is a novel about gangs in Newark, New Jersey. It follows Mally G as he learns how to navigate street life, which affects his family, his friendships, and his freedom. Too Real is built around the geography of the city, a place where your neighborhood merges with your livelihood. Mally G comes to find out that the more things appear fake in the streets, the more he must remain real.
