Chapter 1: This chapter is called "God, I Guess" because, when Mike Wallace asked one of the homies why Father doesn't turn them in, that was his response. It is about God and how he works in our lives. One story I liked from this chapter was about Cesar. He called Father Boyle one day asking him to help him out. Later, he called Father again late at night to know that he's a son worth having. I think we can relate to this because we want to feel loved and like we're children of God.
Chapter 2: This chapter is called Dis-Grace because many of the gang members feel so full of shame. My favorite story from this chapter is Lula. He didn't do well in school and didn't get much attention. One day, he walked in to Father Boyle's office during a meeting. He was really excited to show him his report card. At first, Father was really confused because he had all Fs. Then, he saw that Lula had no absences and praised him. This made me happy and showed that we all have something to be proud of.
