Bring Them Back Alive
Helping Teems Get Out and Stay Out of Trouble
By Jose M. de Olivares

Conversational but unflinching, this insightful guide is the result of the author’s decades of personal experience helping teenagers get out and stay out of trouble.  Written without pretension, political agenda or lofty theorizing, Bring Them Back Alive explains the gritty allure of “the street” and describes in the Streetwise Strategy the practical steps for bringing teens who have crossed the line back into mainstream society – alive.
