These gripping stories of the Inner City frequently involve young protagonists who are involved in crime, drama, struggles, and survival. In many cases, the protagonists are trying to live in a hostile environment which may include violence and poverty.
The stories are often cautionary tales that can help teens understand others, offering a glimpse into unfamiliar territory. Alternately, teens may find characters and situations that they can identify with. Many authors use the genre as a means of shedding light on the struggles and inequities, but also the hope and possibilities of daily life experiences in inner-city enclaves.
