It Doesn't Have to be This Way

1999 Picture Books
Ages: 6 & Up
Author: Luis Rodriguez
ISBN: 0-89239-161-8
Despite the picture book format, this well-told story of gang life, with a positive ending, addresses issues relevant to 11-18-year old readers. The bilingual (Spanish/English) edition has the potential to engage older children and adolescents with low reading skills, an audience who would respond to the theme of social alienation.
