Description

You'd think a knife in the ribs would be the end of things, but for Chuy, that's when his life at last gets interesting. He finally sees that people love him, faces the consequences of his actions, finds in himself compassion and bravery . . . and even stumbles on what may be true love.
A funny, touching, and wholly original story by one of the finest authors writing for young readers today.

-Soto writes with a touch as light as Chuy's ghost and with humor, wonderment, and generosity toward life.- --Kirkus Reviews -Sweet and sarcastically funny.- --YM "Soto writes with a touch as light as Chuy's ghost and with humor, wonderment, and generosity toward life." --Kirkus Reviews "Sweet and sarcastically funny." --YM "Soto has remade Our Town into Fresno, California, and he not only paints the scenery brilliantly but also captures the pain that follows an early death . . . . [It] will stay in memory." --"Booklist" (starred review)
