    " I really enjoyed reading this book. Oscar Casares did a wonderful job using Brownsville, Texas as the setting, yet writing stories that relate to all races and all people, rather than just Mexican-Americans. I like how Casares made the stories shorter than expected because that allows the reader to really engage with each particular story by having to think about what has happened rather than the author completing the story for you. Overall, this is an amazing book! "

    " Read it a long time ago. Really liked it. I am reviewing it as a "mentor text" for my short story collection for my capstone. "

    " I picked this up in the exam list purchasing frenzy, but did not make the cut. Short stories set in Chicano communities in Texas. Not amazing literature, but occasionally amusing. The code-switching in this novel is sometimes a little out of nowhere "
