    " Excellent book. It's graphic and does have profanity; however, Soto draws you in to Chuy's life and encounters with a gang member. Soto's idea of how it might be in between death and going into the light is intriguing. I couldn't put this down. "

    " The book I read was called "The after Life" by Gary Soto. The book is about a boy named Chuy who is stabbed one night at a party. He dies that night and goes into the after life. He sees everything around him, even some things that he never knew he could. He just wished that he could let his family know that hes there. He can give them little signs that he's there, but they wont see him. What i learned from this book is that sometimes the have to face the situations that cant be changed. "

    " This didn't work for me. It showed promise at the outset, but the disembodied soul? consciousness? of the murdered protagonist, getting wafted here and there by the wind or whatever, then gradually fading--"Kiss me quick! There goes my upper lip!"--was just lame. And the Raiders game? What was that all about? It seemed like tokenism. "
