To make your holiday shopping as smooth and frustration-free as possible, from December 5-December 27 only books currently in stock at one or both of our locations will be available for purchase online. We will still be able to take preorders for not-yet-released books. But online orders for other books not currently on our shelves will have to wait until after the holidays, in order to minimize disruptions. If a really popular book is out of stock, check back in a couple of days to see if more copies arrive. Send any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
High school senior Aiden O'Connor's life is in turmoil. He's bored with school, his growing skill at boxing won't pay the rent when his drunken father leaves, and someone is keeping his mom from finding work in any pub in South Boston.
Lured by childhood friend Tommy's promise of easy money, Aiden reluctantly gets mixed up with the Irish mob. Aiden's strong sense of honor makes him a bit too good at his job with the King of the Street, who wants to keep Aiden involved for reasons of his own. Conflicted about nearly everything, Aiden has to decode where his loyalties lie - and when he has had enough.
Exploding with tough choices and the grit of true crime, A Kid from Southie is the story of one teen's dangerous trip through the temptations of power and the sacrifices that come with it on his way to deciding who he wants to be.
