What People are Saying About This

James Blasingame

“Once again, Gary Soto takes us on a tour of the back streets of Fresno, California, where life can be dangerous and complicated for a thirteen-year-old boy like Gabe Mendoza. From backbreaking manual labor on his uncle’s farm to trading blows with aspiring gang members, Gabe’s typical day is anything but boring. The most difficult problem he faces, however, is navigating his relationship with his father, a recovering alcoholic who has returned to Fresno after abandoning his family only to live homeless in vacant lots and overpasses. But a good friend, a lucky break, and a new canine companion will give Gabe just enough help to make it through in good form. This new ebook from one of our favorite authors will have readers begging for the next chapter in the life of Gabe Mendoza.”
