This is a dramatic visual book about living on the Mexican side of the southwestern border. The text uses Spanglish to give a rap-like poetic response to daily life in the time of narco-terrorism. The blood-red images appear to be torn from the daily newspaper front pages. An intense and frightening book that ends up with a ray of hope for the future.
