Yummy: The Last Days of a Southside Shorty (Book Review)

Leave a comment Standard

Yummy: The Last Days of a Southside Shorty is the story of the real-life 1994 life and death of Robert “Yummy” Sandifer. He was an 11-year-old boy with a rough childhood. He had just been accepted into the Black Disciples Nation gang and he wanted to prove himself.

After living through this tragedy and with various sources of research, G. Neri pieces together Yummy’s story. In combination with Randy DuBurke’s style, this is a story that you won’t forget.

A poignant recounting of tragic events that should have never transpired to begin with. This novel displays the facts of what happened and what led up to it in the first place. It will leave you feeling conflicted in understanding but never truly knowing the answer to the simple question of “Why?”
