About The White Boy Confessions
 The White Boy Confessions deals with gang life and violence in San Antonio and such controversial subjects as race relations, poverty, and interracial crime. The first twenty-nine years of Valdespino’s life were compelling and tragic. Valdespino witnessed his father’s drug dealing to high profile people and he followed in his footsteps. Valdespino’s story is chilling in its depiction of sex and violence and heartfelt, poignant and sad in its portrayal  of the rite of passage of a young person growing up in this world.  
Today, all of Valdespino’s friends are in the penitentiary, dead or their whereabouts are unknown. Yet, by some miracle he went unscathed and experienced no penitentiary time. All of Valdespino’s story—the bad and the ugly-- is in The White Boy Confessions, a story of not just survival but also redemption.
