For the past four seasons, viewers have joined the foursome of Los Angeles teens as they experienced the ups and downs of adolescence in their roughneck of the woods. From hidden treasures to gang activity, Monsé, Ruben, Jamal, and Cesar have tackled pretty much everything that's been thrown their way since first coming to our screens, but the time has come to say goodbye.
