Welcome to Compton where life is similar to Baghdad. Take a peek inside the lives of three childhood friends and journey with them through adult hood. Who dies? who goes to prison? who falls in love? who makes it out? you'll have to read to find out.
Kevon Gulley is an every day kid from Compton. I grew up in the Imperial Courts projects until age 10, then my Grandmother came to rescue my siblings and I when she found out that my Mother was doing drugs. From there i grew up on the streets of Compton and entered the Gang life. At age 17 i was sentenced to 10 years and 8 months in the California Youth Authority for Carjacking, Kidnapping, and Discharging a firearm. Only to return 3 years later with an 8 year sentence. it is during this period of incarceration that Just Like Compton was born. I had read all the Teri Woods novels, and a few of the other Urban authors and they all had 1 thing in common. Predictability. Instead of sitting around complaining, I decided to do something about it. Enjoy the results.
