Homeboy’s Soul: Pride, Terror, and Street Justice in America

Homeboy’s Soul: Pride, Terror, And Street Justice In America

Richard Reyes, Gang Prevention Activist: “Required reading for students, parents, school administrators, police officers and community leaders.” Elizabeth Rhone, Mount Sinai Church of God in Christ: “You won’t want to put this book down!"

Description: Hollywood actor Danny De La Paz (Boulevard Nights, American Me) states, “Homeboy’s Soul deserves to take its place among the best literature available today on the complex and fascinating subject of what draws a promising young life to such self-destruction.” Homeboy’s Soul tells the true story of Don Armijo’s rise to power within Calle Doce Los Sharkies, one of Los Angeles County's most violent street gangs, and delves into what life in the world of gangbangers is really all about. Cruise the barrio with a true vato loco. Face the deadly consequences of a movida on a rival gang. Share the private thoughts and fears of a real-life Chicano child-turned-killer. Experience the love and mistrust, the terror and boredom and, ultimately, the sense of hopelessness that there will be no bright tomorrow at the end of all the violence. Homeboy’s Soul neither blames nor defends barrio youth for their decisions, but rather provides a basis for understanding the culture and influences that lead them to the choices they make. Armijo has made peace with his past and has dedicated himself to helping others find their path to a brighter future. ISBN: 978-1-4489-7969-1 (Publish America, 318 pages)
