The book "crazy loco" is a really good book it has many short stories and sorta mainly Hispanics family; and one of the stories have to do with crazy loco the dog in the book cover. I think Hispanic teenagers will be interested in this book i liked it. Its appropriate it doesn't have anything sexual or bad .
