American Skin - Don DeGrazia

This was the first (and only, as far as I know) book written by Don DeGrazia. I grabbed it off a shelf in a bookstore while living in South Korea. I was bored to death and looking for something to read.

I took it home and read the whole book in one night. It was an excellent story.

It is a story about a kid whose parents get busted for drugs so he heads for the big city (Chicago). He gets hooked up with a gang of ANTI-nazi skinheads. That's right. They even had black members. They ended up in a gang war with the neo-nazis. It is a violent book...but is really a love story.

I'll be damned if I didn't have to go back to the store the very next day.
