An interesting story about a Mexican American growing up in New Mexico. The story has colorful characters and some good cultural references. I found its tone a bit on the preachy side and I felt that both the writer and narrator felt they had all the answers, creating a tone that often drove me nuts.

What I liked (and this is a SPOILER) was the reverse Grease resolution in the story. There are so many books out there in which the nice girl becomes bad to suit her bad-boy-boyfriend. In this case, the misunderstood youth lived up to his girl.
