Guardian of a Gangster

Authored by Rudy Castro

Guardian of a Gangster is a coming of age story. It's about two boys who grow up in the neighborhood of the Avenues gang in Northeast LA. Set in 1992, around the time of the L.A. riots they both join the gang, following their family's path. But a separation begins to divide their friendship apart. However, there is a secret from their past that bonds them forever and at the same time sends them on different life courses.
The novel is inspired by the true story of two brothers: one joined the notorious Avenues gang while the other sought self-healing at a boys home.
