The Mexican American author Gary Soto draws on his personal encounter of expanding up in California's Central Valley in this finely crafted collection of eleven short stories that reveal big themes in the small events of everyday life. Crooked teeth, ponytailed girls, embarrassing grandfathers, imposter Barbies, annoying brothers, Little League tryouts, and karate lessons weave the colorful fabric of Soto's world. Glossary of Spanish terms included. The smart, tough, vulnerable kids in these stories are Latino, but their dreams and desires belong to all of us.
