Everything you need to understand or teach Always Running by Luis J. Rodriguez.
Luis Rodriguez’s arresting memoirs tell the story of a young Mexican boy growing up in East Los Angeles. Luis recounts his descent into gangs, Thee Impersonations and The Animal Tribe, and the violence that rips apart friends and families in a brutal exploration of gang motivations. But Luis’ tale doesn’t end there; instead it is a story of hope and redemption as he turns his life around with the aid of community members and the written word.
