White Boy Shuffle
   Paul Beatty

White Boy ShuffleWhite boy shuffle is the hilariously funny story about the Afro-American boy Gunnar Kaufman. He grows up in the all white Santa Monica. But when his mother suddenly decides to move out into the ghetto, Gunnar finds himself in a whole new world where people don't act nor talk like he does. At first he only manages getting beaten up by local street gangs, but things change. Gunnar shows to be one of the most talented basketball players and an active street poet.
    The White Boy Shuffle is like nothing I've ever read before. It's fresh, crazy and hilariously funny.
