Abstract: 
From back cover: "In 2011 and 2012, while more than 900 people were being murdered on the streets of Chicago, creative-writing students from DePaul University fanned out all over the city to interview people whose lives have been changed forever by the bloodshed. The result is this extraordinary and eye-opening book. Told by real people in their own words, the stories inside are at turns harrowing, heartbreaking and full of hope."

Notes: 
Big Shoulders Books at DePaul aims to produce one book per year that intimately connects DePaul graduate writing students with the local community, and that disseminates writing by and about Chicagoans whose voices might not otherwise be shared. Big Shoulders Books hopes to contribute to discussions of Chicago's injustice and inequality as well as its resilience and creativity. (Adapted from inside the book.)
