When Rufus Henry gets out of work camp for Grand Theft Auto, he has only one place to go? back to Durango Street. Almost right away, he gets on the wrong side of the Gassers, has to join the rival Moors? and starts running for his life. Years ahead of its time, Durango Street, like The Outsiders, shows that gang violence is, sadly, nothing new? and nothing glamorous."A starkly realistic, convincing, well-written teen novel." ? School Library Journal

From Our Editors

It doesn’t matter whether Rufus Henry wants to turn his life around, when he gets out of work camp after having stolen a car, he can only return to his old life. It’s not long before he’s on the bad side of one gang and can only protect himself by joining another. Durango Street brings into focus a world that’s impossible to escape and sadly still exists 30 years after Frank Bonham wrote about it.
