In this character- and plot-rich story we meet many unforgettable characters who fill up Salvadore Silvia's world. The adopted son of a Mexican-American father who happens to be gay, he has a best friend Sam, a feisty girl with attitude, a loving grandmother and a friend in need, Fito. But all the characters are in need in this book in the way that we are all in need, of self-understanding, companionship, love, families. This is a book that looks at how to live life, face grief, find self-awareness, understand love. Sounds ambitious, yes......and memorable. Edie Ching (14 and up)
