Description
By age twelve, Luis Rodriguez was a veteran of East L.A. gang warfare. Before long, Rodriguez saw a way out of the barrio through education and successfully broke free from years of violence and desperation. Achieving success as an award-winning poet, he was sure the streets would haunt him no more, until his son joined a gang. Rodriguez fought for his child by telling his own story in this vivid memoir.
