Based rather on wish-fulfilment but with some hard-hitting plot points and strong morals, this YA novel follows the fortunes of three lads who want to form a hip-hop group. Excluded from school, they end up at a teaching centre and following their dream, although things quickly sour when gang warfare intervenes. The plot was not that believeable, but pacy, attractive and a good read.
