This is an astonishingly good read about a corner of the U.S. rarely written about. It is the Latino ANGELA'S ASHES, written with such heartbreaking hilarity I couldn't put it down. An important book - read it.

Terrible

Well written, but it is 350 pages of feeling sorry for himself and blaming everyone possible for his misgivings. He needs to grow up and take responsibility for himself. I wasted time reading this I can never get back.

    How is it possible for this poor family to consider themselves white people? only because they were born in Texas?
    The book only reflects the anger and frustration of the people who doesn't accept for who they are. Trying to forget the their parents culture and language to emerge on their minds like white people.
    He criticizes his friends on all aspects: how they dress, talk, live, just because in his mind is better than his neighbors.
    I asked myself: How did his friends see him? may be they have some photographs, audio or video to proof otherwise.
