van Diepen, Allison. Snitch. New York: Simon Pulse, 2007.[Book cover credit: http://www.librarything.com/]

When Eric Valiente moves to town, Julia falls for him immediately. She hopes that he's like her, too smart to fall into the gangs that rule their high school. When it turns out that he's not, she steps out of her safety zone of non-participation to protect him. Now she's in up to her neck.

Snitch and you're a punk who better watch her back, right? No matter what. But what if you tell to save someone else? In a world where loyalty is drawn along color lines, not black and white but red and blue, who would you choose? Your friends, your family, your hot new boyfriend? Who would you snitch for?
