Yummy, the Last Days of a Southside Shorty is a biography of 11-year old Robert 'Yummy' Sandifer through the eyes of his classmate, Roger. This book is a dramatization of true events that occurred in Chicago during 1994. Eleven-year old Yummy, a member of the Black Disciples gang, guns down a 14-year old girl. The book tells of the events following the shooting that garnered national headlines, including a cover story in Time magazine.

Winning a Coretta Scott King Honor Award, the book is fast-paced and will appeal to readers of graphic novels and readers of true crime stories.
