Read full description of the books Gangs And Your Neighborhood:1. Is the writer telling too much?
No, I don't think the writer is telling too much i think he is telling just enough. He explains the problem and the reason for it. on page 6 he says "i accepted the way things were in my new hood. My friends stole from other people to get the clothes and food their parents couldn't afford to buy them. i wanted to fit in with them, so i was willing to do anything they did. That was the biggest mistake of my life. violence and crime became part of my everyday life". he explains that he wanted to fit in and the way he could fit in is to do what every one else was doing. The author put just enough information for everyone to understand the bigger picture.
