really liked it
Read from July 17 to 30, 2012

Came very close to giving this 5 stars. Fascinating, behind the scenes look at a gang and the housing projects they control in Chicago. Author gets amazing access to the gang members and the community and tells a deep and revealing story about daily life there.
