Descripción

"With unflinching, in-your-face clarity reminiscent of Nathan McCall's MAKES ME WANNA HOLLER and Kody Scott's MONSTER, author Celeste Fremon takes the reader into the previously unexplored realms of contemporary Mexican-American street gangs. Fremon opens the door to this world with detailed portraits of the East L.A. homeboys' brutality and of their dreams, their anguish, and their humanity-all against the backdrop of the priest's relentless battle to stop the killing." This book has 307 pages. N° de ref. de la librería 018841

Sinopsis:

Recounts the efforts and achievements of a crusading priest who was assigned to a volatile East Los Angeles neighborhood, detailing his efforts to revitalize this urban war zone and how he became a pivotal role model to many young men in the area.

From Library Journal:

Fremon, a writer for the Los Angeles Times, presents a beautifully composed exposition of the work that Father Greg Boyle, S.J., has done with young Latino gang members of East Los Angeles. Boyle has received national recognition for his dedicated efforts to redirect lives: finding jobs and decent alternative schooling and offering unqualified support and love for kids whose homes are so emotionally impoverished or destructive that gang affiliation is a surrogate family tie. Boyle couldn't save all the "homies" from the results of gang-banging, gun attacks, alcohol, dope, and prison, but they knew he was there, and many have made it to responsible adulthood. Interspersed with the descriptive narrative are first-person vignettes from some of the young people. In her three years of involved research, Fremon developed a strong respect for the kids, the problems, and especially "G's" work. Highly recommended for public, academic, and professional audiences.?Suzanne W. Wood, SUNY Coll. of Technology, Alfred
