About the Book

In the beginning, Minor Jimenez, a promising young Latino, appears to be on the path of turning his life around after getting past a brush with the law a few years earlier. He has a good job and has been in an loving relationship with his girlfriend, but living on his own in East LA has its challenges. Shootings occur regularly, and in many cases, the police are on the lookout for gang members as the usual suspects. In this story, the tables are turned when two gang members who survive a shooting testify against Minor. His life has turned upside down as he and those closest to him struggle to defeat the rival street gangs.
