Bunny (real name Bernard) doesn't understand why his late grandfather wants him to get a tattoo. Actually, Bunny doesn't understand a lot of things, so it's good that his older brother, Spencer, is happy to explain things to him. But this is a task Bunny is supposed to do on his own, and nobody is more surprised than Bunny when, after he gets tattooed, he is befriended by a kid named Jaden and adopted into Jaden's gang. The gang hangs out at a gym, where Bunny learns to fight, but when it finally dawns on him that the gang is involved in some pretty shady-and dangerous-business, Bunny is torn between his loyalty to his new friends and doing what he knows is right.

This book is the fourth in Seven: the Series, following Between Heaven and Earth, Lost Cause, and Jump Cut). Seven cousins are each given a task to do by their grandfather as part of his will. Along with the task, they are given the funds necessary to carry it out. Here, the cousin whose story it is is Bernard, nicknamed Bunny. Bunny is fifteen, big for his age, and developmentally delayed. His brother's story was told in Jump Cut and the books stories integrate with each other. Bunny's task is to get a tattoo of his grandfather's service insignia. Arrangements have already been made with the tattoo shop in question, and Bunny's chooses to go on his own. When he gets off the streetcar near the shop he finds a large boy beating up a smaller one and comes to the smaller boy's assistance. In the tattoo shop, communication goes awry and Bunny comes out with a different tattoo than the one intended, and it is this, along with the assistance he gave the boy that will chance his life's direction in a radical way. Bunny is used to being underestimated and pushed to the sidelines, so when his new friends seem to genuinely value some of his skills and accept him into their group, they earn his loyalty. This book has some interesting twists, and Bunny is a very interesting character. Really enjoyed this one.

The spelling is definitely challenging when you start the book. However, once I understood it was intentional, I found it fit with Bunny's character completely. I appreciate the unique way in which Richard Scrimger wrote this. Was it my favourite book of the 7 Series? Absolutely not. But it was worth the read and it made me think from a different perspective.

I understand that the author writes the way he does to capture the way the protagonist talks but come on. Is this really how we are teaching kids to write? With broken sentences most of which start with And. The spelling mistakes that make the kid sound like a gangster rapper gets old very quick and makes him sound stupid. I gave up 20 pages in. If you want something intellectually stimulating this is Not the book. :(
