Schraff, Anne. To Die For. (Urban Underground) Saddleback 2014 181p $9.95 ISBN 978-1-62250-765-8 hs New Adult VG-BN
In another Urban Underground morality tale, the setting is the barrio and the characters are several of its resident teens. The book is well written for its intended readership, high/low readers. This story about high-school bullies and the homeless is written similarly to the other Schraff titles, in a somewhat trite and stilted style. But the topics discussed make it an important book to include in high-school library collections, unlike some of the other titles in the set. The novel also continues to follow the lives and relationships of Ernesto, Claudia, Abel, and Clay.
Summary: When a homeless man is killed, a bunch of Chavez High School bullies try to stay away from the light of justice. When one of them seems to be flush with money all of a sudden, Ernesto and his friends start to take notice.
