Book Description

In riveting storytelling fashion, The Boston Globe’s “68 Blocks: Life, Death, Hope,” tells the story of the city’s most violent neighborhood, Bowdoin-Geneva. It’s a story filled with emotion, heartache and heartbreak. But most of all, it’s a story about the uplifting spirit of the people fighting for the place they call home.
