9780307283917: Sammy and Juliana in Hollywood

Top Ten Best Books for Young Adults, 2005
–Young Adult Library Services Association

A young adult novel Latino-style–the year is 1969. America is at war, “Hollywood” is a dirt-poor Chicano barrio in small town America, and Sammy and Juliana, about to head into their senior year, are in love.

Sammy & Juliana in Hollywood is a Chicano ode to survival. In so many ways, in so many of the characters’ lives, I see images of riding out the storms of youth, of a cultural revolution, of war and of death. But of love, too: lost love, found love, the love for friends and family, for place. What else is there to chase after?
–René Saladaña, Jr., author of Finding our Way and The Jumping Tree

From AudioFile:

In Hollywood, New Mexico, 16-year-old Sammy Santos falls in love with Juliana, a girl with dark secrets and fire in her eyes. The novel is far more than a coming-of-age story as Sammy deals with first love, poverty, the War in Vietnam, drug overdoses, murder, and racism. Robert Ramirez's performance captures Sammy's introspection, honesty, and moments of poetic lyricism, creating a living, breathing teenager on the edge of awareness. Ramirez is just as at home handling street language and poetry. Liberal sprinklings of Spanish are read so skillfully that the non-Spanish-speaking listener understands the gist of what's being said. Gritty as the unforgiving New Mexican desert, Sammy's story makes compelling listening for older teens. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
