Upstate

Upstate
by Kalisha Buckhanon.
Sometimes life throws you curve balls. Things happen and you can't really figure out why that had to happen to you, but you have to live life anyway. Antonio seemed to have a pretty good life for a high school student. He had a beautiful girlfriend and a best friend and he was just living. But God had a different plan for Antonio and when he gets sent to jail for murdering his father, he finally realizes how many things he took for granted when he was on the "outside". He lost the love of his life, his mother, his life. When he started to think with more hope and decided he wanted to better himself, his life slowly seemed to be getting better.
In a book written completely in letters, read about Antonio and Natasha's emotional love for each other, their falling out, and how their lives ended up-without each other.
