I liked this book because it showed the true colors of a former Latin King. It also showed that being in a gang is not worth it. It teaches you to be careful with whom you are friends. All in all I just liked how it really made the point that it can change someone’s life if they are in a gang. I think other students would like this book because it’s the truth. It’s what really does happen in a gang. It tells about the consequences gang members face and what they must do to stay in the Latin Kings. And if it isn’t scary already, this book took place in our very own hometown of Chicago. All the names are changed for security reasons but the story still has the same effect.
