Linda is a young, hardworking single mom struggling to get by from paycheck to paycheck. When she learns that her son Dre needs a kidney transplant, her family's already precarious financial situation takes a turn for the worst. Then she discovers that the only one who can help Dre is his half-brother LeVon, a drug-dealing gangbanger who thinks only of himself. Somehow Linda must get through to LeVon in order to save her son. Though she is deathly afraid of LeVon and the world he lives in, Linda knows she must conquer her fear and meet him on his own turf if she is to have any hope of success. Linda is finally able to teach LeVon the value of doing something noble with his life. And to her surprise, she learns she has room in her heart for one more kid, a boy from the streets who never had a chance.

Why did I think this would work? I can't just approach a total stranger and ask him for a kidney. It's insane. When Linda learns that her son Dre needs a kidney transplant, her family's already shaky financial situation takes a turn for the worse. But when she discovers that the only one who can really help Dre is his half brother LeVon, a drug-dealing gang-banger, money is suddenly the least of her problems.
"I know my boys are going to enjoy reading this book. It is the best novel of its kind, in my opinion...[Something Noble] has everything they will admire, including a CHANGE OF HEART!"--Nancy H., Special Education Teacher
