Street Pharm by Allison van Diepen
Ty Johnson is at the top of his game, following in his father’s footsteps and making a fortune selling drugs. Even though his dad is serving time, Ty still gets plenty of advice from him -- including the name and phone number of a hitman to take out Darkman, a new competitor. But Ty is not just like his father and the decision he makes about Darkman and his crew might just cost him his life.
Ty struggles to find a balance between keeping his rep as “King of the Streets” and having an ordinary high school life. While his dad is relying on him to keep the business running, his mom insists he leave the streets alone. When he meets the girl of his dreams, he realizes he might need to leave his street life behind before she discovers who he really is. Street Pharm has long been a favorite among students at Passages Academy; it ranks among the most popular novels in our libraries. --Anja Kennedy
