This is a great book for pre-teens and teens and even adults. The poems are easy to relate to and address real life for teens. Gary Soto captures what life is about for everyone through his own experiences which serve as models for these poems. Read full review

User Review  - Goodreads

This story was astounding. Although it did not sound like real poetry, it was a book beyond it. It records the life of Gary's most favored moments as a child and adult. It fascinated me on how his life was in a place I've never been before. Read full review
