Long before U.S. News and World Report named him one of
America's Best Leaders and Oprah Winfrey called him "an angel from
God," Geoffrey Canada was a small, vulnerable, scared boy growing
up in the South Bronx. Canada's world was one where "sidewalk"
boys learned the codes of the block and were ranked through the rituals
of fist, stick, and knife. Then the streets changed, and the stakes got
even higher. In this candid and riveting memoir, Canada relives a
childhood in which violence stalked every street corner. "If you
wonder how a fourteen-year-old can shoot another child his own age in
the head and then go home to dinner," Canada writes, "you need
to know you don't get there in a day, or week, or month. It takes years
of preparation to be willing to commit murder, to be willing to kill or
die for a corner, a color, or a leather jacket."
