Urban Fiction Books (The Right Way To Go)

Urban fiction emerged as a genre in the 1960s and 70s which portrays the harsh realities of urban life. The tone of urban fiction books is usually dark, providing an unfiltered glimpse into the challenges of urban communities. ‘The Right Way to Go’ by Torrey C. Butler is one of the best urban fiction books.

In this African American Urban fiction, ‘The Right Way To Go,’ the readers meet Xavier Zay Dunn, an exceptional star basketball player at Magnolia Senior High School. Hailing from an underprivileged neighborhood, he’s determined to secure a college future despite the challenges. However, tough decisions loom ahead. Just as Zay finds his stride, tragedy strikes with the sudden loss of his mother, leaving him devastated. Accused falsely of a life-altering crime, his dreams crumble before his eyes. Plunged into the harsh realities of his unforgiving neighborhood, Zay battles the perils of peer pressure, making a mistake after mistake. In this book about peer pressure, resilience, and self-discovery, Zay embarks on a journey to find The Right Way To Go. It is one of the best books on peer pressure, written by an urban fiction author Torrey C. Butler, that delivers a powerful narrative that resonates with young adults, making it a remarkable addition to the genre of new adult fiction.
