Eddie has been trying to stay out of trouble since graduating high school. But, it’s hard when your city is wallowing in their own tears from violence and murder. It seems as if Fresno has a buried onion underneath that makes its people cry out for their dead loved ones. Eddie deals with murder, gang violence, and considering the military as his only way out from the buried onion.

Great book for those who see and experience gang violence and murder in their city. And for those looking to escape an onion as well.
