Parrot in the Oven: Mi Vida by Victor Martinez

Manuel is a Mexican American boy living in CA. This book tells the story of his struggle to find himself and figure out his life. His father is an alcoholic and can’t keep a job. His mother is passive and cleans compulsively. His three siblings have struggles of their own. Beautifully written story.
