He settles into a comfortable routine, pleased that he is one step closer to realizing his dream. A chance encounter in a neighborhood bar disrupts that dream and leads to a lifelong friendship. While defending a ladys honor against a couple of thugs, Gil attracts the attention of Louie, a slick boxing promoter, and his partner, Huey, an ex-fighter. The two friends witness Gils superior fighting skills, and a reluctant Gil suddenly finds himself thrust into the unlikely, often times shady, world of boxing. Louie and Huey have big plans for Gilthey see his potential as a future champion and make him an offer he cant refuse.

The young adult adaptation of the acclaimed, #1 New York Times bestseller Just Mercy--soon to be a major motion picture starring Michael B. Jordan, Jaime Foxx, and Brie Larson and now the subject of an HBO documentary feature!
