Ghetto Flowers is the story of multi-ethnic inner city youth coming of age in the red brick, row home, asphalt, concrete jungle of South Philadelphia. The narrow streets, homes, and alleys form a complex culturally diverse maze of neighborhoods for kids to utilize every available opportunity to thrive in their struggle to survive. The book is semi-autobiographical, using actual and fictionalized events from the author's life to illustrate the challenges young people face in their attempt to grow beyond cultural circumstances that hinder the discovery and unfolding of their innate potential. Ghetto Flowers is a collection of realistic stories woven into a novel and written so that readers can appreciate and understand the challenge of growing up with unusual educational and cultural influences in what many would consider a world of deprivation. The Ghetto Flowers will amaze you with their ingenious resourcefulness and their insatiable hunger for adventure.
