The book "My Bloody Life", was based about Reymundo's childhood. And how he grew up getting beat up by his parents. The beatings that he got from his parents, influenced him to do drugs. just to get away from stressing out, or feeling lonely. His words are very powerful, and he even talks about his first sexual activity with a woman that was in her 30's. By the age of 14, reymundo had already started to live independent. He had no family, and only had the king brothers with him. He became a criminal, not willing to open his eyes to reality and that his so called brothers, aren't really there for him. At one point, he became so homeless, and hungry, that he had to experince homosexuality. He didn't do it for pleasure, or because he's crazy, he only experienced it because he was in need for food and money. I think every kid influenced into gangs should read this book. They need to open their eyes, and see that being in a gang isnt just to be cool, it can be dangerous,and can be putting peoples lives in danger. I enjoyed reading this book. it tought me the truth, and hopefully it can do the same with other people.
