Sixteen-year-old Josh is no stranger to gang life.
His dad, the leader of the Warriors, a gang on their reservation, is in jail, and Josh’s older brother has taken charge.
Josh’s mom has made it clear the Warriors and their violence aren’t welcome in her home—Josh’s dad and brother included. She wants Josh to focus on graduating high school. Josh is unsure whether gang life is for him—that is until gang violence arrives on his doorstep.
Turning to the Warriors, Josh, now known as “Creeboy,” starts down the path to becoming a full gang member—cutting himself off from his friends, family, and community outside the gang.
It’s harder than ever for Creeboy to envision a different future for himself. Will anything change his mind?
