Facts of Life by Gary Soto

In this collection of Short Stories by Gary Soto, he explores moments in teens' and pre-teens' lives. One boy decides not to choose between living with one of his divorcing parents. Another girl tries to cope with learning that she is an illegal. Definitely on the young side of the TU spectrum (the main characters are 11-13). And like any short story collection some are better than others. Good and enjoyable but not great. I give it a nay.

This has a resounding Nay from me. I agree that it is a bit young, and I also could not find a single story that I really wanted to read. It was ok, but nothing at all TU worthy.
