45.0% "Based upon the East Harlem Garbage Offensive of 1969, Sonian Manzano's debut novel will remind readers of what they loved about Rita Garcia-Williams's ONE CRAZY SUMMER. Manzano puts us right in the barrio with her descriptive writing. Super, super read so far. Look out TBR piles. . ."

63.0% "And so we stayed in a pool of angry love. When I heard some people singing hymns in Spanish, I knew we were the insiders and they were the outsiders. This was about the ones who stayed in, against the ones who stayed out" (139). Manzano's writing is crisp and poignant all at the same time. This book will be a hit this fall. Think ONE CRAZY SUMMER mixed in with ESPERANZA RISING."
