The Barrio Kings by William Kowalski

This tiny book is published by Raven, an imprint of Orca, known for publishing low reading level, high interest books. They are quite a hit with my special ed. students at my high school.

Rosario, 23, works at a grocery store and is anxiously awaiting the birth of his first son. He used to be in a gang, but is clean and trying to get his G.E.D. When his old gangbanger buddy shows up seeking revenge, Rosario doesn't want to get sucked in. But sometimes you don't have a choice. Or do you?
