There are No Children Here by Ales Kotlowitz

There are No Children Here by Alex Kotlowitz (1991)
Being born in public housing among gangs, drugs, guns and death does not allow for a childhood – thus the title which tells the lives of those children who survived living in Chicago’s Roseland community. The boys portrayed in the book were kids who lived in the public housing and they shared their methods of survival. An enlightening read.
