How about *We Beat the Street* by Samson Davis, et al.?

And there's a memoir about two high school students with the same name who
ultimately went two different directions, one to prison and the other to a
very successful career.  I can't remember the title, but I remember hearing
it book talked and was intrigued by their story.  The title might have "The
Other..." in it, like "The Other Will Something?"
