Book Review: The Circuit by Francisco Jimenez

The CircuitThe Circuit by Francisco Jiménez

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A collection of short stories from the point of view of a child, growing up in a migrant working family, traveling from one California town to the next throughout the growing season.

A great little book, too short actually for me.  I wanted more stories and to hear what happened to each of the family members as they grew up.  Enlightening and fascinating, a whole other world and way to grow up.  Loved the characters and the closeness of their family.
