The path to a good education isn't going to be an easy one for these two young Mexican-Americans. As Jesse absorbs information in his classes, he learns harsher lessons from the people around him. Watching them and the choices they make, Jesse begins to understand the limits of his world.
Gary Soto, a poet and novelist, has won prizes and awards for his work. Filled with wry humor and realism, Jesse reflects Soto's own experiences growing up in California. Robert Ramirez' lightly accented voice captures the thoughts and emotions of a young man on the threshold of an uncertain adulthood.

the chapters are not number correctly because the audiobook book shows it's only for but in reality there's 19
Glad yo have found my favorite book.
I read this book in college and it has been my favorite book since then. I hadn't read it in a few years so I'm glad I have the audiobook and can listen to it on my commmute, whenever I want.
