Description

Jimmy is dead--a victim of gang violence in Los Angeles. Gunned down in front of his family, he was accused of skimming drug-money from Ice Breaker Joe and Lamar. Jimmy's younger brother Tito knows Jimmy hated gangs--how could he have been involved with these criminals? Now the gangbangers are looking for Tito. He needs to find their missing money soon, or his family may be hurt. Dodging taggers, hustlers and dealers along the way, Tito comes up with a plan that may save his family and put the gangbangers away forever. Drive-By is an ALA Recommended Book for reluctant young readers. With a street-wise narration by Robert Ramirez, this novel will thoroughly engage listeners, young and old alike.

Professional reviews

"Tito was sure his brother Jimmy wasn't a gang member until Jimmy was shot dead in the street. Now he had better find what the gang is looking for, or his family may never be safe. Despite the suspense of this subject and the cliff-hanger chapter endings, this audiobook falls flat. There is no hint of a "poverty-stricken L.A. neighborhood" in Robert Ramirez's performance. The discrepancy between the necessity of a clear, even-paced reading and the setting of the story may be too wide for even the best narrator to bridge. This discrepancy makes the story jarring, distracting, and finally boring. J.M.P. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
