From the Publisher:
Living with his mother in a racially divided city, fifteen-year-old Sonny Bravo finds his life uprooted when his mother marries Okie building contractor Cloyd Longpre and moves them into a small apartment building, Los Flores, where he becomes embroiled in the lives of his neighbors, including Cindy, a teenage drug addict, and Nica, a cloistered Mexican girl. Reprint.
Annotation:
When his mother marries the landlord of the "Los Flores" apartment complex, young Sonny Bravo, the novel's narrator, finds himself embroiled in the lives of the peculiar tenants--an African-American albino, an unhappily married teenage high-school dropout, and a girl kept locked in her apartment. With his nerd buddies Mike and Joe in tow, Sonny faces the complex racial tensions of his new home, and finds himself falling in love.

Praise

"Gilb's new novel is hilarious and thought provoking..." 11/19/2007

"Meet [Sonny Bravo], the precocious, Holden Caulfieldesque narrator of Gilberto Gilb's coming-of-age novel....Narrated in run-on sentences, fragments, Spanish phrases, and street slang...Sonny's voice is mesmeric." - Sarah Fay 03/16/20008
