Description-

  • "Friendships, family, grief, joy, rage, faith, doubt, poetry, and love—this complex and sensitive book has room for every aspect of growing up!"—Margarita Engle, Newbery Honor–Winning author of The Surrender Tree

    Sal used to know his place with his adoptive gay father, their loving Mexican American family, and his best friend, Samantha. But it's senior year, and suddenly Sal is throwing punches, questioning everything, and realizing he no longer knows himself. If Sal's not who he thought he was, who is he?
    This humor-infused, warmly humane look at universal questions of belonging is a triumph.

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine Narrator Robbie Daymond's soft, calming tone is appropriate for the peaceful world of 17-year-old Sal. Sal's father, Vincente, is a gay Mexican-American who has a thoughtfulness and compassion reminiscent of Atticus Finch's. Vincente has always cared for Sal, having adopted him at age 3, when his mother died. A letter left by his mother leaves Sal wondering about his biological father. Could his genes be the cause of his recent violent tendencies? Or could it be the impending death of his beloved grandmother, or the disasters that have befallen his best friends? Daymond's gentle tones soothe listeners just as Vincente's tenderness calms the troubled waters through which Sal must pass. Daymond's narration, though low-key, gives rounded portraits of all the story's characters and doesn't minimize Sal's heartache or his attempts to control his temper. S.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award � AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine

    Senior year of high school is off to tough start for Sal, the protagonist in Sáenz’s latest YA novel. His beloved grandmother, Mima, is dying of cancer, and he’s been getting into fights at school. To top it off, his father gives him an unopened letter from his late biological mother, which unleashes other repressed emotions. Sáenz spins a unique coming-of-age tale that includes laughs and heartache, all of which Daymond communicates with a youthful and emotive voice that captures Sal’s somber, sweet outlook. There are few frills to Daymond’s reading; instead he opts for a more realistic rendering of this first-person narrative, adding only slight differentiation in his voice when other characters speak. It’s a subtle but powerful performance. Ages 12–up. A Clarion hardcover.
