The book is about Martin that gets sent to rikers island because he gets caught telling a cop where they sell weed and it's all about his experience in jail and how he survives. At first he's new but then they get him in a program in jail that's like school and he meets his friends and he's out to get somebody with a spider tattoo in his face because he stabbed him and left a mark in his face
The setting is in rikers island witch is a jail in New York .
I like this book because it gives me some connections of people that have been locked up
