Review: This book continues the story of Antonio Pintero. At 15, he pursues the life of a gangster drug dealer. But pretty soon it all becomes too much for him. This is the diary of our young hero, a documentary of his secrets, hopes, and fears.
Again, written in that raw, urban style that Cisneros knows too well, this is another powerful and soulful story. Certain areas lagged with excessive detail and some of the characters weren’t that interesting, but, for the most part, it’s an easy read. A suitable follow-up to the first book.
