About the 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. He lives in Berkeley, California. www.garysoto.com

From AudioFile:

Lincoln has mixed emotions when his mother moves him from a San Francisco barrio to a "better" neighborhood. Soto aptly captures Mexican-American life and culture while also making his characters universal. Narrator Robert Ramirez is at his outstanding best as he presents parents and kids of diverse cultures, a nasty basketball coach, and a teenager learning to live with change in a bewildering and fast-paced America. Selected phrases throughout the text verbalized in both Spanish and English provide excellent practice for language students. The Spanish makes this a natural for the audio format, and Ramirez more than does it justice. An enjoyable and worthwhile story for all ages, not just teens. S.G.B.
