What a lazy ending. It is as if there should be a second book to this, but probably not.

At the beginning of the book, I liked most of the main characters but by the end.......didn't like any of them. This was a very "harsh" book to read however.....I would recommend it.
It forces one to look and think about both sides w/o blessing one and cursing the other.
Plus, good writing.
This novel tells the story of two families in Los Angeles - a Mexican man, his wife and baby trying to survive against impossible odds and bad luck and an affluent, liberal American family. It is about racism and ultimately, compassion.
I had to push myself to finish this book. The beginning showed originality and promise, but as it progressed, it just became ridiculous and even surreal. I understand that racism is still alive and kicking in the U.S., but it felt too over-the-top in this book. It was hard to become attached to the characters things went from bad to worse to god-awful. I started feeling less and less concerned about them, which is (I'm pretty sure) the exact opposite of what the writer intended. It was a quick read, but didn't impress me much.
