A Nation of Amor

'“Despite its minor shortcomings, this is a powerful first novel. The author has a stunning knack for dialogue, with most exchanges sounding as if they took place on crosstown buses while McConnell jotted notes. When Reynaldo speaks to his students, he tells eloquent stories of his life; when he gets angry, his speech is peppered with Spanish expressions that snap perfectly into place to supplant weak English words.” —The Boston Phoenix   “One marvels at how McConnell gets inside the minds of struggling Latino teens on the shores of Lake Michigan.” —Publishers Weekly'
