National Public Radio reporter Maria Hinojosa s work with crew (gang) members of New York City inspired this in-depth collection of interviews. Her direct, nonjudgmental questions evoke poignant, surprising, and sometimes shocking responses from young people torn between violence and struggle for survival in America s cities. The contemporary topic, universal themes, accessible writing, and compelling language will fill a void on many libraries shelves. These powerful statements may serve as a wake-up call to young adults and all who work with them today. --"School Library Journal"
