Mexican-American author Gary Soto draws on his own experience in this heartfelt, award-winning short-story collection that explores Latinx identity.
From crooked teeth, ponytailed girls, and embarrassing grandfathers to annoying brothers, Little League tryouts, and karate lessons, Soto writes about everyday life with humor and empathy. With a glossary of Spanish terms included, this moving collection--an ALA Best Book for Young Adults, Booklist Editors' Choice, and Horn Book Fanfare Selection--expresses the universal truths of growing up.Binding Type:
