The Chronicles of WaterWorld After the Hough Riots By: Ali Taylor In Cleveland, Ohio, drugs, rape, violence, and mayhem became a part of a neighborhood called Hough Heights.

Now the next generation is experiencing new obstacles which caused them to neglect the ones our leaders risked their lives to put in place. Crime bosses Frank Burton, King George, and others come up with a plan to get rich from the negative environment of Hough. Consequently, two undercover FBI agents mysteriously disappear. King George realizes the criminal underworld activities will be threatened by the agents’ disappearance and his past will catch up with him if he did not stop. King George decides to change his ways and give back to the community. However, King George’s son, Ali, is now caught up in the criminal activities surrounding him.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jason Reynolds, a 'funny and rewarding' (Publishers Weekly) coming-of-age novel about friendship and loyalty across neighbourhood lines and the hardship of life for an urban teen. A lot of the stuff that gives my neighbourhood a bad name, I don't really mess with. The guns and drugs and all that, not really my thing. Nah, not his thing. Ali's got enough going on, between school and boxing and helping out at home. His best friend Noodles, though. Now there's a dude looking for trouble - and, somehow, it's always Ali around to pick up the pieces. But, hey, a guy's gotta look out for his boys, right? Besides, it's all small potatoes; it's not like anyone's getting hurt. And then there's Needles. Needles is Noodles's brother. He's got a syndrome, and gets these ticks and blurts out the wildest, craziest things. It's cool, though: everyone on their street knows he doesn't mean anything by it. Yeah, it's cool . . . until Ali and Noodles and Needles find themselves somewhere they never expected to be . . . somewhere they never should've been - where the people aren't so friendly, and even less forgiving. 'A funny and rewarding read.' Publisher's Weekly, Starred Review 'Urban fiction with heart . . . unexpectedly gorgeous.' Booklist 'Moving and thought-provoking . . . defies readers' expectations.' Kirkus
