Note: “Although this is not a true story, it is inspired by true events. It neither glorifies gang life nor promotes it. On the contrary, it paints a realistic picture of the pain, suffering and stress that gang life naturally causes and compels the reader to consider the human condition as it relates to our need for love, friendship, belonging and forgiveness.”
