About this title:

Synopsis: Ten-year-old Junior is thrilled and a bit nervous about moving from an El Paso barrio to the house his father has purchased in an Anglo part of town. His mother, who speaks only Spanish, is somewhat less thrilled, especially when she finds out the family will be living in the subterráneo—a dark, unfinished basement—until the white family renting the house above moves out.As the ever-optimistic Pop works to improve his family’s situation by adding an apartment to the back of the house, Junior and his little brother make friends with Tim and Kim, the children living above them. But soon tensions erupt—between Junior’s mother and Tim and Kim’s parents, between Pop and co-workers at his new job, and between Tim and Boogie, Junior’s friend from the barrio—and these conflicts reshape Junior’s relationships with family and friends, and threaten the new world his father is striving to create.“This is truly an extraordinary story by a gifted writer.” —Rudolfo Anaya, author of Serafina’s Stories“A delightful coming-of-age story by a new young adult author.” —Lila Guzmán, author of Lorenzo's Secret Mission“This book feels like a classic to me.” —Naomi Shihab Nye, author of You and Yours“Carlos Flores’s insightful domestic drama is a study on what it means to be an American: love and tragedy aren’t too far apart.” —Ilan Stavans, author of The Hispanic Condition: The Power of a People
