Choose your side in this cutthroat ﬁght over the right to remain in one’s own home.
A devastating injustice rages across America. It’s the theft of private property for private gain—or, as the lawyers call it, eminent domain. By any name, it spells one fate for its victims: the loss of their homes and dreams.
Cade is back from Iraq with a bad conduct discharge, an addiction to painkillers, and a case of survivor’s guilt—the aftermath of an IED attack that killed seven Iraqi soldiers. When the eminent domain epidemic arrives at his doorstep, Cade is drawn into a ﬁght to protect the apartment complex where he lives, which is also home to thousands of Salvadoran tenants. But he won’t ﬁght unopposed: a real estate developer and a vicious gang leader will go to enormous lengths to crush Cade and his neighbors. Inspired by true events, Cade’s Rebellion is not only the story of one community’s efforts to reclaim their homes, but one man’s efforts to reclaim his soul.
