I received this book through a Goodreads giveaway.

I enter a lot of giveaways and sometimes I end up with books that I would never have picked up in the bookstore.That's ok though because it broadens my reading horizons. Down By Law is a book that I would have passed right by, being a white, suburban, more than middle aged male. In spite of my drawbacks, I have to say I enjoyed it. I lived through the 80's and the references ring true. The characters are consistent. The moral, perhaps, a little too predictable. Even with that, this is a book I would recommend and an author I would read again. ( )

Lesson #1: You come for me, I come back even harder for you. Fair exchange. No robberies.

Isis Carter got schooled early on in surviving the streets. When some girls put a beatdown on her, she took back what was hers. When her brother was killed and her mom, Queenie, bailed, Isis fought to stay strong. And when her dad abandoned her for his new family, sixteen-year-old Isis buried the hurt by looking out for herself—and hookin’ up with bad boy Fresh…until a run-in with the law shatters Isis’s world and threatens to destroy her future.

Now the only person Isis can rely on is herself…until her secret crush K-Rock steps in. But when Isis lets her guard down, will she be given a second chance to get her life straight or will it cost her everything?
