Soon after this he starts taking boys to his old neighbour hood to buy drugs shortly after this he learns that his mother is running for mayor and then Nick his friend starts dealing. Nick overdose on heroin and dies. Jude’s mother’s boyfriend Harry gets a plan for Jude to go to jail temporarily so the public could tell she wouldn’t go easy on him even though he is her son (she is a DA) but once he ends up in jail nobody springs him because of this he has a lot of spare time so he decides to get college credit and become a lawyer. After he gets out a reporter from is old school wants to do a story about how he got into jail but they need proof so they can blackmail Harry into confession. Jude falls in love with the reporter’s sister Lizzie and at the end if the book Jude gets accepted into Law school. This was a very good book. I recommend it to everyone.
