In his first novel for young adults, acclaimed author Gary Soto paints a moving potrait of two sweet, ambitious Mexican-American brothers who hope junior college will help them escape their heritage of tedious physical labor. Young adults will sympathize as the two of them work through their problems and come to terms with what is possible in an imperfect world.
