Information
For Eddie there isn't much to do in his rundown neighborhood but eat, sleep, watch out for drive-bys, and just try to get through each day.His father, two uncles, and his best friend are all dead, and it's a struggle not to end up the same way.The violence makes Fresno wallow in tears, as if a huge onion with its ubiquitous vapors were buried beneath the city.Making an effort to walk a straight line despite constant temptations and frustrations, Eddie searches for answers after the death of his cousin and discovers that his closest friends may be his worst enemies. AUTHOR: GARY SOTO's first book for young readers, Baseball in April and Other Stories, won the California Library Association's Beatty Award and was named an ALA Best Book for Young Adults. He has since published many novels, short stories, plays, and poetry collections for adults and young people.
