"[A] convincing depiction of Mexican-American gangs in East Los Angeles, focusing on two teen-age girls who are born into a world of despair and devastation....Murray details these two girls' grim histories with little sentimentality and much skill."
"An absolutely spectacular, absolutely unique debut. "Locas' reveals to us hitherto untold messages of love and yearning and transcendence from the bruised and broken heart of L.A. I'm crazy about this book."
