How far would you go to get what you want?
In Fishtown, life isn't easy. Philadelphia is a big city, but all its problems come alive here, in this place. That's where Justin, Keith, Adrian, and Angelica hang out, and it's where they realize that all they need to be happier is to get some money. So that's what they're gonna do.
Though getting money in Fishtown isn't easy either. But Angelica knows a guy with a job. He's nice, and he likes her, so maybe he can help. And if he doesn't, well, maybe they have a plan for that too...
Inspired by a horrific crime in Philadelphia, Kevin Colden's Xeric Award-winning tale of teenage confusion and rage speaks to the primal depths of the human condition... And if we can ever understand the motives of another.
