From a priest who was in the trenches comes the heart-wrenching story of two kids on the mean streets of Chicago's South Side
South Chicago gives you lots of reasons to join a gang. Like, if you say no, they beat you up, follow your little sister home from school, and torch your house. Pretty soon, wearing your tattoo and colors, you learn what gangland means: Kill or be killed. Maybe both.
