Buried Onions

Buried Onions is by Gary Soto. Eddie lives in the barrio in Fresno, California. His father, two uncles, and best friend are dead. He does not want to be a part of the gang lifestyle that surrounds him, but is it possible to get out or will he be forced into a lifestyle he doesn't want? A novel that asks the question of whether change is possible or if we are forced by our environment into a specific lifestyle. If you enjoy Soto's work, you will like this one as well. You can't help cheering for Eddie.

Ratings: 7th grade - 8 out of 10 - AC (some mature thematic content) - V (violence) - MP (mild profanity).
