Durango Street

by Frank Bonham  |  Grades 5-8  |  Lexile Level 640

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.
