I was looking for something fun to read and I sure found it This book intended for YA audiences offers a look at the darker side of being a teenaged Latino in San Jose California Middle school aged Miguel's living situation is horrible His single mother rents out all surfaces and some floor space to migrant workers of uestionable ethics and cleanliness She's already a frantic mess when her older son Miguel's brother Juan is shot and killed at age 15 Convinced that it was a gang hit Miguel's grief is all consuming Distracted in school by thoughts of what must have happened he suddenly feels Juan's presence Inside him Juan's ghost can hear Miguel's thoughts and direct Miguel's body Frantic with a mixture of joy and fear Miguel runs home where Juan's girlfriend is being comforted by Miguel's mother Maria sees Juan's ghost and screams which sets off a dreadful series of events involving a homeless spirit capturing ex minister a loving and grieving Uncle Tito a priest who believes Miguel a hair trigger gun and a whole collection of evil spirits There are some scary battles and the subject matter is dark but I think it's appropriate for 5th grade and up I enjoyed it enormously Ms Knoblaugh has a compelling and enjoyable writing style and I liked meeting her characters very much
