What Makes The Urban Boys Different by K.N. Smith

I think the lyrical writing definitely sets this book apart, as well as the diversity of the characters, both ethnically and gender-wise. I also believe I have a responsibility to transport the reader into the scenes. Just reading a book is one thing, but feeling it and experiencing it is something different. I try very hard to provide a great level of detail so that you feel like you're there. Of course, we all have humorous situations in our lives, and others that are more serious. This book covers it all. There are funny parts amongst the boys, and other parts that are extremely dramatic and emotional. This mirrors our real lives so readers are able to relate in many ways. The thing that creates contrast between this book and other books are the paranormal elements. There’s all of the common goings-on amongst teenagers, and the adults in the story, but when the paranormal comes into the story, all heck breaks loose! This is where their everyday way of life becomes mysterious, and intrigue chases the boys from chapter to chapter. They find themselves twisting and grinding through an action-packed, mysterious mess, which eventually needs to get sorted out. Bring some popcorn and clear your schedule before you start reading!
