life, who is a Mexican American living in Fresno, California In the book, Soto writes about his childhood in the 1950s and 1960s,his working class neighborhood his school adventures, how he gets into mischief, his relationship with his family and his work experiences Some of the characters in the book are his brother Rick, his sister Debra, and the mother.One of the problems that occurs in the book is that Soto runs away from home and lives on the street The conflict is resolved when he gets a job at the Valley Tire Factory, a tire shop in Glendale, California He eventually finds a place to live by renting a room from a family that argued often The resolution to the conflict shows the reader that Soto becomes independent My favorite part of the book was when they were working in the tire shop and the border patrol came and they all started running away from them because they were undocumented immigrants, but Gary wasn t an immigrant he just ran with them for fun Its my favorite because its show us how us Mexican work hard and risk our life for our families I think Gary Soto wants readers to know that relationship with your family is very important He also wants us to know that life is hard because as we get older we need to learn how to be independent, without the help of our parents As i was reading the book, I learned that our decisions always have positive or negative consequences In my opinion, Living Up the Street, was mediocre because it was a book that has a lot of adventures I do and don t recommend this book because its confusing, Gary changes unexpectedly in every chapter But its shows us how he gets older and is mature even to live by himself The central idea of this novel is, I think, poverty Gary Soto lived his whole life in poverty, and we see what that means in each stage of life What I found interesting about this was that he describes it as he was living it he doesn t add any hint of his thoughts about the situations presently It s not ever explicitly stated that he did live in poverty, but it s very obvious from his experiences alone what he had, what he did, how he thought He doesn t try to hide or sugar coat it, but he

experiences alone what he had, what he did, how he thought He doesn t try to hide or sugar coat it, but he also doesn t make it seem like it s all the book is about, he s just telling his life story.A word I would choose to describe this is discrimination Now, again, the word discrimination isn t used a lot in the book, but the idea lingers like a bad stench Over and over again, Mexicans are referred to as worthless Even Gary feels that way for a while There are things he doesn t want to do and even vehemently rejects because he feels it s strictly a Mexican thing, and he doesn t want to be seen as only that I thought this was a good book, though not really out of the ordinary I was able to relate to much of what he went through and it did hit home That being said, I ve seen many things like it that have touched meI appreciate the fact that it does go into detail about the little things that make up this culture built on poverty Though it s nothing amazing in my opinion, I do think it s worth the read if you re interested in learning about what it means to live in poverty One of the problems that arises in the story is Soto becomes homeless when he runs aways from home The conflict is resolved when he find a job in Valley Tire Factory, a tire shop in Glendale, California He finally finds a place to stay by renting a room by a middle age coupleMy favorite part of the

the book Soto writes about his childhood experiences,, His family, His work encounters, poverty, and his love life Some of the characters are his brother Rick, his sister Debrare throat This was my favorite part of the book because I could relate to him When I was little I had to get a shot of penicillin because I had a stomach infection I can only imagine how much pain he went through because it was really painful and stressful for me.I think Gary Soto wants readers to know that everyone should work hard to be able to be able to succeed in life He also wants readers to know that life is difficult when one is poor but you can still enjoy your life In my opinion the book, Living up the Street, was kind of boring because in some of his chapters the things he would bring up were kind of boring But some of the subjects he would talk about were interesting Overall, this book was pretty interesting and nice I learned how hard it was growing up in a poor neighborhood I used to teach this book frequently to undergrads It s short but very rich, spanning Soto s life from early childhood to early adulthood By turns it s tragic, heartbreaking, charming, and funny, but it s always poetic and insightful You can read it easily in one sitting of an hour or so, and it s a really great example of 20th century Chicano literature.
