    -one of his non gang friends gets jumped by his gang friends & he has to decide who means more to him

    - A description of the 1st time he uses drugs

    -a long lost sister he meets as shes prosituting. & it turns out shr could be doingthat to make money & thats how he can find out about his mom

    -Gang enitiation, like him robbing a store or having to do a hit

    -Later have a kid join the gamg thats younger than him, but have him have the perfect life

    -Sleeping in thestreet

    -having him walk around the town with a gun on him, not looking guilty

    -Him selling drugs to kids younger than him hoing down the same path

    -him getting arrested somhow & being questioned by the cops, not knowing who to call

    The following might inspire some ideas:

    -The gang forces the boy to make his first kill

    -Someone close to him dies

    -He is sealed in the gang, if he leaves, it's by dying (he just found this out)

    -His girlfriend is raped by other gang members, or his gang; which teaches him of the roughness and attitude of the criminal underworld.

    some people stop reading because books are too real most people read to get away from real life think about that

    Well, he's involved with a gang, isn't he? Gangs are notorious for murder, world-wide.
