Moving, well-written, realistic story of growing up. AWESOME!!!

WHEN WE WUZ FAMOUS is an awesome book! The protagonist, Francisco, is intelligent and mostly serious, while his best friend, Vincent, is not a positive role model and relies on others to help and support him. Francisco's girlfriend, Reignbow, is also smart and knows what's right. Their relationship is healthy, and gives positive messages. While there is some violence, and Francisco is pressured to get drugs for the snobby kids at his prep school, and that Vincent is in jail for part of the story, it's overall a moving, well-written story of growing up.

This title has:

Educational value
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
