    this is a very blunt depiction of the south side of chicago back before and during Vietnam. Lots of racial tension, drugs, and sex. It's very graffic and very honest. I read it when I was just becoming a teenager and some of the images still stick with me. this is a very blunt depiction of the south side of chicago back before and during Vietnam.

    I wish I could give this book 10 stars. I've heard how bad the Cabrini Green projects were, but to read the heartbreak that was experienced on a daily basis was moving. The story of Ilene and Bush, with Bush killing Ilene and their son looking down at his mama dead, along with the child that she was pregnant with.... just heartbreaking. The story of 9 year old David being shot in the back of the head by the police for stealing a bag of chips and running from the police.... these are stories that I wish I could give this book 10 stars.

This book shows how much the cards are stacked against people who live in the inner city. A quote from the book was "You can't change destiny, but you can direct it," is shown by the ending.
