Soul of the Desert
by Maria E. Schneider
In 1976, the best a kid in Harlem can hope for is to work for the mob or pick up extra bucks as an informer. It may be too late for Rand, but that won’t stop him from trying to save his brother, Bo. When strangers appear on the streets of Harlem, Rand hatches a crazy plan to send Bo to a place that is so desolate and removed from Harlem that no one will dare follow.
