    Reviewed by Kira M for TeensReadToo.com

    Life in a Puerto Rican barrio has its ups and downs. The community is close-knit, but the money is scarce.

    With bad influences in the forms of peers, pressure from boyfriends, and the loss of friends, things can get difficult. Each teen has their own way of dealing with things - and this is a book of their stories.

    An eye-opening collection of short stories that doesn't put rose-colored glasses on the reality of at-risk teenagers. The stories are believable and touching, the teens in the book are easy to relate to, and the author does a great job of painting the small-town barrio.

    Readers who like realistic fiction and books with stories told by teens will enjoy reading this book.
