Guns and violence, divorce, and drugs are among the many issues that touch the lives of so many of today's children. "Understanding Issues anticipates the questions children have about these uncomfortable topics and examines them in language children can understand.

Gang violence, joining a gang, and the ways communities are fighting back are issues that are explored here.
