From the back of the book:

Coming of age in The Park, a cluster of town houses and leaning concrete towers in the disparaged outskirts of a sprawling Toronto, Michael and Francis, sons of Trinidadian immigrants, battle against the careless prejudices and low expectations that confront them as young men of black and brown ancestry. Set to a backdrop filled with pulsing hip hop beats, the brothers’ bright dreams, including a career in music for Francis and pursuing young love for Michael, are irrevocably thwarted by a tragic shooting and the police crackdown that follows.

A unique and exciting voice in Canadian literature, David Chariandy crafts a heartbreaking and timely story about the profound love that exists between brothers and the senseless loss of lives cut short with the shot of a gun.
