Foreword by Geoffrey Canada, CEO, Harlem Children’s Zone

Violence is commonplace in many teens’ lives, but it’s not easy to talk about. These real-world stories from victims, perpetrators, and witnesses will inspire thoughtful discussion on tough topics like bullying, gangs, dating violence, and family abuse.

“Want to know what young people are living with every day? Want to understand how to help? Things Get Hectic will tell you. They want us to know.”
—Geoffrey Canada

Things Get Hectic is compelling reading for anyone who wants to understand and to feel the world of young people in poverty—and to support their road to hope.”
