Review: Homeboy's Soul by Don Armijo & Fred Stawitz

Cruise the barrio with a vato loco. Face the deadly consequences of a movida on a rival gang. Share the private thoughts and fears of a real-life Chicano child turned killer. Live the most pervasive and misunderstood lifestyle in America--gangbanging! And the challenge? Do it all without dying!

I really enjoyed this book.  I’ve heard so many stories about gang-life and while it’s fascinating, it also poses a real threat, especially for young people who will do whatever it takes to fit in.  I thought the writing was great.
