Young Savage… Rasheed Carter book review

382
Young Savage Rasheed Carter
In the debut novel, Young Savage, by Rasheed Carter readers will be introduced to a young child, Rodney, who is the product of a single mother’s drug addiction.  Her priorities are on everything BUT being a mother to young Rodney so he is often left to take care of himself.
As a result, Rodney gets into some trouble and is sent to a youth detention center where he finally makes a real friend. At the same time he is educated on street life as well as survival and at the end of it all Rodney reemerges as a new person.
Young Savage tells the all so familiar story of your young male who is a product of his environment and although he wants better, he also lives by the code of survival of the fittest.  I enjoyed growing up with Rodney through the book, because of the author’s ability to truly take you into the main character’s daily life.  Kudos to Rasheed for his amazing character development.
There were many emotions filled within these pages, one definitely was sympathy for Rodney because he didn’t have any options it was him against the world (his mom), but that was also what made me keep reading because I wanted things to get better.
Young Savage was a good book but with a professional edit job this story would have been a much smoother read.  Nonetheless it is indeed a story of hope. I do look forward to reading future works from Rasheed Carter because from this debut it is clear this writer has the talent.
