The Brothers Torres

"So there's this guy, right? And he's known this girl forever..."

Written by: Coert Voorhees

Pages: 316

My rating 1-5 stars:

4 Stars

Frankie Towers has known for Rebecca Sanchez a long time. They have grown up together taking swimming lessons and just hanging out in their small home town 20 miles from Albuquerque, New Mexico. But something changed in High School; Frankie can't stop hoping that one day they would be more than friends. But that stirs up some trouble when John Dalton beets him in asking Rebecca to Homecoming. John Dalton is on the soccer team with Frankie's older brother Steve and he is the son of the two richest people in their small town. Frankie gets into a fight with John, which opens him up to the world of Steve. Steve hangs out a lot with the cholos, who start talking and letting Frankie hang out with them after the fight. But when another incident happens with John, Steve wants revenge. Which brings Frankie to wonder if Steve will do too much to keep his reputation with the cholos...

This book was great. It opened my eyes to a different culture and I got to practice my Spanish reading on the Spanish words that are somtimes used. I really enjoyed hearing the story from Frankie's point of view. I really felt like I knew him and that I had known him for a long time. I also could just visualize the town that the characters live in. Coert did an amazing job of bringing this book to life with every word. After reading the book I have added New Mexico to one of the places that I want to visit in the future to actually get to see all of the culture that is adresed in THE BROTHERS TORRES.I recommend this book to every high-schooler out there because I know that you will live reading about what people do to get a good rep. And if you are looking for a good discussion book this would be great for that reason.

~*~ Due to content in this book, I do not recommend this book to any one below the age of 15.~*~

I felt as though this book accurately portrayed the life of any average teen and did a good job of incorporating spanish language and real life situations. They included the average thoughts of teenagers, including thoughts of violence and sex. THUMBS UP!!!!!! I hope their is a sequel.
