Fragments Of The West Side: Growing Up In The Shadows Of Downtown Chicago

Each move meant leaving old friends, making new ones, starting new schools and a host of other challenges that seemed overwhelming. I can remember there were some great times and other times that weren't so great. However, in looking back, I wouldn't have changed it for the world.
