Deadly Loyalties is set in an urban lieu that is rife with young gangs who recruit their members as fresh as they can get them. Blaise, a 14-year-old girl and the narrator of Deadly Loyalties, is in the centre of this urban gang setting. An innocent bystander she witnesses the brutal murder of her good friend Sheldon by his rival gang. Due to her witnessing this murder, Blaise is pulled into a gang war. An engrossing and compelling coming of age story depicting the gritty and often gruesome realities of life on the streets, Deadly Loyalties is an open and honest look at the violence and pressures teenagers face when trying to belong. This page turning love story is from a teenagers perspective and reveals to the reader how some bad choices are not always rooted in bad values. A search for belonging can often result in mistaken loyalties. This struggle through teenage angst is a tale of friendship, betrayal and redemption, of loyalty, revenge and survival.
