I wanted to give this a three star rating, because there were a few cameo appearances by Milo and Fabiola, but it really wasn't enough to justify the rating. What went wrong was that Alegria decided that in order for this novel to function, many of the characters and side characters had to become idiots, crazy, or a combination of the two.

Santiago finds out that his dad was just released from prison. His mother and AP Castillo try to talk to him along with the help of a guidance counselor. Yeah,

No second chances

it was a really fun story to read about although it was slightly on a easier level for me to enjoy, but of course that's my own opinion :)
Actually didn't think much of this book at all. The central character drops out of high school to start his own business. He decides to go back to school after his dad takes the fall for him and his cousin who get caught up in drug running. Not sure what the point of the story was actually.
