Summary "The streets are alive in Echo Park, Los Angeles--alive with passion and anger, with casual moments of love and sudden acts of violence. Gang members Sad Girl and Mousie, once best friends, are now enemies as they have both become pregnant by the same man, Ernesto, a local drug dealer. But when Ernesto is murdered, the balance of power on the street brutally changes and it's time to take sides. As the Echo Park boys deal with Ernesto's murder by searching for revenge, the Echo Park girls arm themselves for another kind of struggle -- the struggle to survive." -- Back of container.
