Why do people join gangs? Once entrenched in a life of crime with its realities of incarceration, addiction, power and money, is it possible to ever walk away?

This triumphant collection of nine personal life stories from ex-gang members enlightens, surprises, inspires and perhaps answers these questions. These first-person accounts illuminate the harsh reality of living as a marginalized person, often neglected and in poverty. Unexpectedly, their stories share heartfelt commentary on topics such as peace, joy, forgiveness and hope.

Readers will be challenged to question their own preconceived notions as they are given an illuminating look at individual lives behind the crime statistics.

This book covers territory that often doesn’t get into the news media. It creates connection through our shared humanity.
