Summary
  • A collection of nine stories about Mexican American kids growing up in the Rio Grande Valley of southern Texas
  • A collection of nine stories about Mexican American kids growing up in the Rio Grande Valley of southern Texas. Meet Loco, a dog with a passion for firecrackers. And Pedro, an altar boy forced to learn a hard lesson from two of the toughest, oldest men ever to serve the Lord. Jordan and Todd are two boys from California who don't know what they're in for when they push their Texas cousins a little too far. Loosely based on the author's own childhood in south Texas, this story collection is a moving whirlwind of humor and insight-brash, tender, and full of the unexpected. A collection of nine stories about Mexican American kids growing up in the Rio Grande Valley of southern Texas
