I love this book. It's the best book that anybody can ever have read. I mean with this book you loose yor virginity. You cry, you feel, you see what's going on. It's like if you were their. Too bad their's only 5 stars because I would give this book all the stars in the world. You might think I'm exagerating with this but I'm not. If you read it you'll know what I mean. I love Jose he was like the hero of this story. After rwading this book I wanted to meet Jose so badly. I wished that I lived in that time to have had the chanse to met him. I also wished I would of met Juan he is a great child, well man right know but in the story his a kid. Jose is my hero. This book had an inpacat in my life that you won't imagine. The author Victor Villasenor is a great writer, and author. When I was reaading the book I could see everything, like if I was there. Maybe I could imagine Los Altos de Jalisco because I'm from Jalisco, Mexico and I know what town, and ranchos look like. I would recomend thid book to anyone. Oh by the way Dona Margarita is a great woman. She always kept her faith.
