National Public Radio reporter Maria Hinojosa’s work with “crew” (gang) members of New York City inspired this in-depth collection of interviews. Her direct, nonjudgmental questions evoke poignant, surprising, and sometimes shocking responses from young people torn between violence and struggle for survival in America’s cities. “The contemporary topic, universal themes, accessible writing, and compelling language will fill a void on many libraries’ shelves. These powerful statements may serve as a wake-up call to young adults and all who work with them today.”--School Library Journal
