Reviews

At once accessible and artful, this is an important book about Mexican teens holding onto hope and friendship.--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
This searing portrait of two Mexican-American families conveys the experiences of a group that is underrepresented in YA fiction.--Publishers Weekly
Mendez minces no words as he presents issues that are all too real for many Latin American communities. . . . Mendez's attention to raw detail in plot and diction is both painful and illuminating. With its shades of social justice, this will appeal to readers of Matt de la Peña and Jason Reynolds.--Booklist
For fans of Matt de la Peña's Mexican Whiteboy.--School Library Journal
Gut wrenching.--School Library Connection
