Dodgers is a book that surprised me and kept me wanting more. This story is unforgettable and exciting. I wouldn't have chosen this book without reading reviews and I am so happy that I chose to pick it up. I did enjoy it, but I wanted more to the story. Everything else was perfect and I wouldn't change a thing!

Dodgers is a dark, unforgettable coming-of-age journey that recalls the very best of Richard Price, Denis Johnson, and J.D. Salinger. It is the story of a young LA gang member named East, who is sent by his uncle along with some other teenage boys—including East's hothead younger brother—to kill a key witness hiding out in Wisconsin. The journey takes East out of a city he's never left and into an America that is entirely alien to him, ultimately forcing him to grapple with his place in the world and decide what kind of man he wants to become.
Written in stark and unforgettable prose and featuring an array of surprising and memorable characters rendered with empathy and wit, Dodgers heralds the arrival of a major new voice in American fiction
