Description of this Book
Lologo lives with her Nan, father and two brothers. Mum has recently passed away and everyone is struggling with it in their own way. Dad is afraid of losing any more family members and becomes overly strict on the children causing conflict, especially with Lologo. She wants to join a school dance crew but he refuses.
Meanwhile, Lologo's cousin Dillon has problems of his own. His mum and dad are separated. Tired of the constant parties and stream of strangers wandering through his home he takes to sleeping in parks. He is addicted to marijuana and will do anything to get money to buy it, including stealing from his own family. Dillon persuades Lologo to take some marijuana. When Dad finds marijuana in Lologo's bag, the conflict at home intensifies.
