Reviews

aHerrera paints a devastating, yet ultimately hopeful portrait of Cesar Garcia, a 16-year-old Mexican teen growing up in the American high-school culture of Fowlerville, California. . . . Cesar is the classic example of Americaas throwaway teen, a young man constantly in the wrong place at the wrong time who, because of his language and cultural differences, becomes more and more marginalized. It is also the story of an educational system that can occasionally make the difference in both teensa and adultsa lives and futures. . . . a roller-coaster tour de force, remarkable for its ebulliant portrait of hope and survival. A must purchase.a
