He gets up from the pile of blankets where he sleeps and bickers with her.
You can only take so many "I was given no opportunities" paragraphs next to ones about voluntary drug use, sex, and violence until it's impossible to believe anything the author says.
It talks about Gang days back in the old days of Los Angeles.
This book is based on his real life, some people dont realize how life is because they havent gone through or havent seen anything. Life in Colorado isnt the same as in the south or in other places. People dont understand that some people stay homeless for not fighting for their lives.
This book talked about several things, though i like the way Luis was, he always said what he had on mind and he wasnt afraid to admit things and things he did wrong.
He tried to act like a bad boy, but i know he still had good inside of him.
Luis was not a very smart boy, he could of been but he just didnt do what was right. This book was a bit confusing! I think that Luis did good on writing this book for several reasons.
I would recommend this book to anybody that is going through hard times, or that have had gang experiences. Some people think that being in a gang is cool and this and that, they just try to fit in.
The ones that are in gangs supposably are just fakes and rookies. The ones that actually dont want to be homeless and fight for their beliefs are in real gangs.
The ones that are in real gangs are not proud of what theyre into, but they have no other choice. Its either u die or you fight for your life.
There life isnt in a good position right now.Luis J.
