The room smells of sweat, smoke, beer, and longing.

The music pulses, the lights flash, and Kata and Ana dance. For a moment the raucous crowd is tamed, and together the two girls soar above their lives. but then the deafening applause sends the dancers crashing down to earth, back to the gang wars, the gunfire, and the only way of life they know.

In a neighborhood consumed by violence, every day may be a gang member's last. And sometimes the only life you can hope to save is your own.

From the Paperback edition.
