The Stars Beneath Our Feet by David Barclay Moore
It all started with two garbage bags full of legos. Or no, maybe it started with the two thugs following Lolly down 125th that night. Or maybe it was Jermaine’s dying. Or that fight they had before ‘Maine got shot. Yeah, it probably was that.
Lolly’s having a hard time knowing how to be without his older brother around. Seems like he’s either sad or mad. The thing that helps most is building. His mom’s girlfriend gave him two huge bags of Legos, and Lolly’s working on an epic city—a project so big it outgrows his apartment.
But there are dangers outside. Older guys who harass Lolly and then jump him and his friend Vega. What would Jermaine want him to do? Get with a crew and take revenge? Or build a different kind of world for himself? Lolly’s going to have to figure this one out on his own.
