East Side Dreams

"East Side Dreams is the debut memoir of Art Rodriguez, a Latino American who survived growing up on the rough side of life, often at odds with his dictatorial father. Rodriguez spent time as an inmate of the California Youth Authority — a prison system for young lawbreakers. This book reflects on the happy and the miserable times of his childhood — growing up, maturing, and finally making a comfortable life for himself." — Google Books
