Dope Sick by Walter Dean Myers

A swift, pleasant read; Dope Sick is the story of how one boy in the gets a second chance to take a close up look at his life and find a way out the “hood”. After a drug deal gone wrong, Lil J is on the run and ends up hiding out in an abandoned building with a male squatter known only as Kelly. Kelly may not have much, but he does have one thing, a magical television which has the capability to help Lil J run back through his memories and his life so that he can really make out just where his life had gone wrong. Lil J is on a cliff, teetering between the life he leads now, a good life, or immediate death. And he must respond to the one question every person has thought about at one point or another "If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be?" This is a great “what if” tale.
