Loosely based on the author's own childhood in south Texas, this story collection is a moving whirlwind of humor and insight - brash, tender, and full of the unexpected.

Crazy Loco is one of the novels in the Hampton Brown "Edge A" reading curriculum. The book is appropriate for my hispanic lower-functioning teenaged readers. While it is not gripping literature, it is amusing and it did teach me more about my students' cultural backgrounds.
Joe Rodriguez does a fine job with the performance.
