North of the Grove is a coming of age story that adds a fresh perspective on the challenges of mentoring inner city kids who have the odds stacked against them. Howard Capelton, a troubled middle-class black man living in South Florida, has fallen out of touch with his family and community. Howard yearns to make amends for his part in his sister’s death by serving as a mentor to David, an angry 10-year-old boy from a nearby Coconut Grove housing project. As Howard's pregnant wife grows uneasy with the relationship he shares with David and David's young and brash, alcoholic mother, Howard becomes more aware of David's struggles. Howard finds a lot of his untested advice may not be enough to show a young a boy how to survive the pitfalls of a gang-infested neighborhood. Tensions at home and the gang culture in the streets lead both of them into making decisions neither is prepared for. As a result, Howard and David's lives are forever changed, along with everyone around them. Howard’s flawed, yet poignant journey opens up new ways to address prevailing assumptions about classism, single parenting and the responsibility of one’s community to each of its members.
