the main flaw that ty johnson has in this novel is he is a drug dealer. he has been around it since he was 9 years old because of his corrupt father. he is very street smart and knows what he is doing but drug dealing has its own law and if they dont need you your gone in seconds. it has already got him shot twice in a drive by shooting. One of his main customers ratted him out to the police and now they are watching him. he hides it from the girl he likes and he hides it from his mother. in the end it is only gonna end up putting him in the cage. latley though hes been very interested in school and has a 75 in one of his classes. the teacher recommended that he go somewhere with it.
If you were in a position like this where you've had drugs and crime around you your whole life what would you do?
