There goes the neighborhood / Jade Adia.
"In order to stop the destructive forces of gentrification, three best friends use social media to create a fake gang and get justice for their South L.A. community"-- Provided by publisher.
Rhea and her friends Zeke and Malachi are South L.A. born and raised. The old neighborhood is fading away, and more white people are flocking to this little urban paradise for its cheap rent, transforming the place they call home. When an eviction notice from a greedy landlord threatens to split up the crew, Rhea and her friends use social media to form a fake gang in hopes of scaring off developers. They even use firecrackers to create the illusion of gang violence. Their scheme appears to work-- until a murder is pegged on the nonexistent gang. -- adapted from jacket
