User Review  - David - Goodreads

Chapters about the "Ask a Mexican" columnist's family history alternate with a mocking but fond history of Orange County, his home. The twentysomething Arellano is a bit young to be writing a memoir, but his writing is easy to digest and I learned a few things. Amusing, too. Read full review
