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 the Compact Disc edition.
