"Startling and revelatory . . . a rocketing real-life narrative."--Baltimore Sun

"A moving book . . . a call to arms."--Chicago Tribune "This intriguing narrative is enlightening, encouraging, and empowering. Read these words, absorb their meanings, and create your own plan to act and leave a legacy."--Tavis Smiley, from the Afterword "[A] compassionate memoir--a story that explores how some survive and others sink in urban battlegrounds."--People "Moore vividly and powerfully describes not just the culture of the streets but how it feels to be a boy growing up in a world where violence makes you a man."--O: The Oprah Magazine "Inspiring . . . a story for our times."--Alex Kotlowitz, author of There Are No Children Here
