I bought this book for both my son's, first as encouragement to read and I knew it was something that would keep their interest. After reading this book my son come up to me, and said mom you don't have to worry about me ever being in a gang.

Light was shed on the dark side of gang banging and it aloud my son's to see different situation that they did not want to see them self in before it was TOO LATE.
