8 out of 10

This short story collection was a good, quick read. It is obviously targeted at a middle-school-aged audience, but avoids the sense of talking down to the reader that shows up in many of these stories. The writing is straightforward but not simplified-feeling. There's a fair amount of humor, and the pacing is typically quick. Soto creates an interesting group of kids, each with widely varied personalities and responses to their world. I sometimes wished the stories were a little longer and that we got to see more of a certain characters, but I think the lengths are very well suited to the target age group.
