really liked it

Parrot in The Oven; Mi Vida, is written by Victor Martinez. This story, is the actuall life of the author, who at that time, was a struggling latino boy who grew up with his brave mom, alchoholic and job-less dad, a sister (who is forced to have an abortion) and a brother who always seems to lose his job. Later, the boy gets more invovled in gang life, and that's when he learns that family is the most important thing in life. I chose to read this book because honestly I couldn't find another book to choose, but it ended up bieng a good decision. I like the author's writing style. It was easy to read because the book because the book was written almost in a diary format. There weren't really any good quotes, since it was more of a naration of his life. Overall, Parrot in the Oven;Mi Vida written by Victor Martinez is an awesome book to read if your from a latino descendency or just a plain interesteted reader on Victor Martinez.
