Nick McDonell's Twelve created a sensation around the world, establishing its seventeen-year-old author as one of the new and important voices of his generation. The book sold over 300,000 copies worldwide and was published in twenty-four countries. Like Catcher in the Rye and Less Than Zero, Twelve captures the soul of a generation. It is a book for the new millennium, a chronicle of urban adolescence that created an international sensation. Set in Manhattan between Christmas and New Year's Eve, it tells an inexorable tale that ranges from the housing project of Harlem to the penthouses of Park Avenue. McDonell introduces us to White Mike, a seventeen-year-old drug dealer, and the kids he encounters - Chris and Claude and Hunter and Jessica with their lives of extraordinary privilege. The story he tells is unputdownable. And just when we think nothing can surprise us, Twelve races to a shocking finale.
