Summary :

On the mean streets of southeast Fresno, nineteen-year-old Eddie is just trying to get by. All he wants is to forget his violent past, hold down a job, and walk a straight line. But after his cousin's murder, Eddie finds himself slowly but inexorably drawn back into the cycle of violence. . . . Set against the backdrop of a city sweltering in the grip of poverty, crime, and unfulfilled dreams, this is the unforgettable story of a young man struggling to survive in a world spiraling out of control.

  • "Soto's clear, finely honed poet's voice shines in this tale...The unvarnished depiction of depressed and depressing barrio life is as important as the positive images of Latinos Soto has created in his other works." Booklist
