About this title


The scene is Los Angeles—but not the LA of sun-drenched beaches or glamorous Hollywood. This is the Los Angeles of the Chicano barrio, where everything in life is stacked against the teenaged hero, Chato Medina, his beleaguered, disintegrating family, his defiant and doomed friends, and the future he may not make it far enough to enjoy. Chato, however, is out to beat all those odds—in his own indefatigable, inimitable way . . .
