The Brothers Torres by Coert Voorhees

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Honestly, I judged this book by its cover. I expected not to like it at all. And since I avoid reading the book summaries on the flap, I did not really know what I was getting into here. Turns out, this is a great book. I love the easy intermingling of Spanish and English, the depiction of natives, Mexicans and whites co-existing, or attempting to coexist. It is gritty, yet innocent, painful yet hopeful. It grants a taste of big business overtaking mom and pop shops and its impact on the community, the social standings in the city and the school…Overall a good read, with likeable characters.
