Baseball in April, and other stories

Gary Soto

Stories about kids in working class neighborhoods of California, with lots of firsts: first kiss, first date, first trip out of the neighborhood. And often overlooked tense situations, like little league tryouts. With so many stories, different kids can relate more to different ones and find their favorites. Soto is always a great writer, capturing all the subtle details about the places and people he writes about.
