Summary
"In 1937 Montana, fourteen-year-old Houston "Huck" Finn finds a dead body in a local creek and steals the man's rare Lindbergh flight watch. Huck is an aspiring aviator, working to build his own airplane-a secret he has kept from his God-fearing mother. His cousin, Annelise, arrives from Los Angeles for a long stay with his family, and Huck is initially wary until he learns she has had flight lessons. As his airplane takes shape, and the young cousins avidly follow Amelia Earhart's voyage around the equator, so too does Huck's understanding of the world and his place in it-in particular the tension between heaven and earth, age and youth, tradition and the coming future, that stresses the bonds of both his and Annelise's families. And then there's the matter of the watch, which it turns out the dead man's cohort of gangsters would very much like back."--Provided by publisher.

Summary
"Marabout Ahmed, is a highly regarded Koranic teacher who runs a religious school for young boys in the capital city where Ibrahimah is sent to join his cousin Etienne to study for a year - the local custom for many families. Six-year-old Ibrahimah loves swiping pastries from his mother's kitchen, harvesting green beans with his father, and racing down to the beach after the mosque in search of sea glass with his sisters. But when he is approached in his rural village one day by a seemingly kind stranger, the tides of his life turn forever. Unbeknownst to Ibrahimah's parents, rather than teaching the boys, Marabout sends them out to beg in the streets in order to line his pockets. To make it back home alive, Etienne and Ibrahimah must help one another survive both the dangers posed by Marabout, and the myriad threats of the city: black market organ traders, rival packs of boys from other daaras, and mounting student protest on the streets. Transporting us between rural and urban Senegal, No Heaven for Good Boys shows the strength that can emerge when one has no other choice but to survive. Drawn from real incidents in metropolitan Senegal, No Heaven for Good Boys is provocative, finely rendered, and hauntingly urgent - an extraordinary debut novel that locates the universal through the story of two boys caught in the terrible sweep of history."--Provided by publisher.

Summary
In the world of the Cartel, there are many pitfalls and family curses. In the city of Miami, the good die young and the bad live forever. The first family of Miami, The Diamonds, are back and more ruthless than ever. When the family has to deal with the sins of the father, karma comes back and rests on the shoulders of Carter "CJ" Jones II . The life his father never wanted for him, calls him and the allure of family tradition sucks him in so deep, that he falls victim to the game. This story shows the second coming of a king and solidifies the cartel family tree in the roots of the streets forever. Ride with a new regime as Carter II and his cousin Mo attempt to carry the legacy of their fathers on their shoulders. Will the city respect them? Or have the ghosts of the past been erased by a new wave of hustlers. Miami was forever changed when Carter and Miamor came to town. Can The Cartel ever regain their strength or was their fall from power too devastating to repair?
