From best-selling Y/A author Marian Flandrick Bray comes a gripping novel that sweeps you into the dangerous gang territory of East L.A.
The day Mia's papa was gunned down by gang members, she vowed she'd never join a gang. But when you're fifteen, living in Southside, East L.A., that vow isn't so easy to keep. When Mia helps two Falcon gang "wannabes" escape from the rival Cobras, she becomes a target.
If Mia joins the Falcons, she and her mom, her sisters Lydia and Cecilia, and brother Reuben will have protection. But Mia hates everything gangs stand for. Yet if she doesn't join, will she make it to her sixteenth birthday? Who will save her family? And why is Danny, the leader of the Falcons, so determined to make her his girl?
