Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

THESE STORIES TAKE the reader to meet mochos; cholos; Mr. and Mrs. Special; Manny with his mysterious phone calls; Melly, who dreams of being the first girl to take the Dive; Andy and Ruthie, who find that being “boyfriend-girlfriend” takes on new meaning the night of the prom; and Chuy, who seems determined to get kicked out of school. Each distinct voice shares secret thoughts that draw the reader into daily dramas of love, danger, loyalty, and pride. In the final story, a shocking tragedy reverberates through the barrio.

“With this collection, Saldaña makes a significant contribution to the field of Latino short stories for young readers.”—VOYA, Starred

“These powerfully written, provocative selections have universal appeal and subtle, thoughtful themes.”—School Library Journal

“While much is revealed, just as much is implied, making the stories layered and rich while still rendering them accessible.”—The Bulletin
