From Publishers Weekly:

"Twelve consistently sparkling, sharp stories recreate the atmosphere of a Puerto Rican barrio," said PW in a starred review. "This fine collection may draw special attentions for its depictions of an ethnic group underserved by YA writers, but Cofer's strong writing [itself] warrants a close look." Ages 12-up.
- warrants a close look." Ages 12-up.
