I have read Jesse by Gary Soto. Even though I had felt that the story itself dragged on a bit, it was still a somewhat enjoyable read.

The story revolves around Jesse and his brother, Abel, in the late 1970s. In the beginning of the story, Jesse decides to drop out of high school and leave his life with his mother and alcoholic stepfather to go live with his older brother. He and Abel enroll themselves in a community college, where they try to balance working on a farm and their schoolwork. Abel studies Spanish and forestry, where Jesse mainly focuses on art. Their main goal was to stop living in poverty. They eventually move into a small, run-down apartment building that appears to be very filthy. Luckily, they only had to pay $110 for rent. Social security gives them both an additional $90 on account of their biological father's death, who had died from an industrial accident when they were young. With that extra $180, they are able to purchase food and clothes for themselves. They earned extra cash by working on farms during the weekends and by selling interesting things they have stumbled upon in alleyways to the local flea market. The story basically continues through Jesse's first semester at community college and gives the reader an insight of his thoughts and feelings. However, when an unexpected romance blooms between his brother and a next door neighbor, Jesse becomes extremely stressed out. To add to his stress, Abel decides to move out with his romantic interest. Now that Jesse is living alone, he must work twice as hard at balancing his work and school. Will he be able to manage it all? Or will it all get to be too much for him to handle?

Overall, I give this book 3 stars. It was good, but could have been better in my opinion.
I really like this story in 6th grade and it kept my attention when i was struggling with reading. I liked to know that someone who worked hard despite the odds could succeed. Of course, it's fiction. Now that I have read it in high school, I understand the nuances of the interplay between characters and the criticism of government, and it seemed more like it was focused on inference and insinuation than Horatio Alger.
this is a great book. i love reading it. i bought it because it was cheap and also i needed it one of my class to read.
I liked this book , the story was interesting and it showed different sides of American culture from the eyes of an immigrant farm worker.
Enjoyed reading the book. Happy that a copy was available .
