I really enjoyed this book which was set in rural New Mexico just after WWII. I learned more about the Catholic religion than I expected to in this coming-of-age story. The author wonderfully captured the back-and-forth bantering that goes on between a group of pre-teen boys. Some scenes were comic, but some were tragic. It had a bit of everything including some magic realism.

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book.
