Description


Mi Rinc ncito en el Cielo (My Little Corner of the Sky) tells the remarkable story of Alberto "Beto" Gonzales, who overcame a childhood of poverty, addiction, bigotry, and violence and went on to change the lives of thousands of children and adults as a mentor and gang prevention specialist. The book explores themes of family relationships, neighborhood segregation, the impacts of drug abuse and crime, and the racism and bigotry that children endure without the benefits of adult protectors. Beto's story is one of pain, recovery, and hope, and one that has the power to change lives.
