Unsigned Hype is the story of Tory Tyson a.k.a. TerrorTory. He’s a teen from the NYC area that hopes to make it big in the hip-hop music industry. TerrorTory tells of his rise to stardom while facing difficult personal challenges. Tory learns God is real, and that He’s looking out for His children.

This novel is written in a fifteen year old’s slang words. Being a mom, it took me a bit to get accustomed to the verbiage, but the novel wouldn’t be the same correctly worded. You’d lose the young man’s voice, and the effect.

I really enjoyed this book. At first, I wasn’t sure if I would, but the powerful message is a great tool for reaching kids who don’t know Christ. Mr. Mattison did a fantastic job taking this suburban mom into the mind, and heart of an inner city kid.
