Burkeville Author Publishes Rivoting New Novel With Desire to Encourage Others to Shoot for the Impossible
"Even the Dead Have a Story to Tell" by Tramain Fitzgerald is an intriguing story surrounding the lives of several young men from the 'hood' in New Jersey, who have been transplanted in Memphis, TN, where their mothers' hope is for them to start a 'new life.' Unfortunately, as teens they experience difficulty fitting into this gang-ridden area ruled by the East Coast and West Coast gangs, but initially keep this information to themselves.
Try as they might to avoid being 'sucked in,' they find it impossible to create a gang-free lifestyle for themselves in their new home and become the mind, body, and soul of the Blue Terrains. Not only do the young men become rivals with the other gangs, they also find themselves up against the corrupt cops hiding in the shadows.
This fascinating tale depicts a sense of danger and the excitement of the game, but also shares the sad side of this lifestyle—death, secrets kept, and a mother's tears—certain to hold to the reader's attention to the very end.
