Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Sáenz' poetic narrative will captivate readers from the first sentence to the last paragraph of this beautifully written novel. . . . It is also a celebration of life and a song of hope in celebration of family and friendship, one that will resonate loud and long with teens."—Kirkus Reviews "…There is never a question of either Sáenz’s own extraordinary capacity for caring and compassion or the authenticity of the experiences he records in this heartfelt account of healing and hope."—Booklist "Offering insight into [an adolescent's] addiction, dysfunction and mental illness, particularly in the wake of traumatic events, Sáenz's artful rendition of the healing process will not soon be forgotten."—Publishers Weekly "Sáenz weaves together [18-year-old] Zach's past, present, and changing disposition toward his future with stylistic grace and emotional insight. This is a powerful and edifying look into both a tortured psyche and the methods by which it can be healed."—School Library Journal Zach is eighteen. He is bright and articulate. He's also an alcoholic and in rehab instead of high school, but he doesn't remember how he got there. He's not sure he wants to remember. Something bad must have happened. Something really, really bad. Remembering sucks and being alive—well, what's up with that? I have it in my head that when we're born, God writes things down on our hearts. See, on some people's hearts he writes Happy and on some people's hearts he writes Sad and on some people's hearts he writes Crazy on some people's hearts he writes Genius and on some people's hearts he writes Angry and on some people's hearts he writes Winner and on some people's hearts he writes Loser. It's all like a game to him. Him. God. And it's all pretty much random. He takes out his pen and starts writing on our blank hearts. When it came to my turn, he wrote. I don't like God very much. Apparently he doesn't like me very much either. Sad Benjamin Alire Sáenz is a prolific novelist, poet, and author of children's books. Sammy and Juliana in Hollywood, his first novel for young adults, was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and a Young Adult Library Services Association Top Ten Books for Young Adults pick in 2005.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Winner of the 2013 PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction! Benjamin Alire Sáenz's stories reveal how all borders--real, imagined, sexual, human, the line between dark and light, addict and straight--entangle those who live on either side. Take, for instance, the Kentucky Club on Avenida Juárez two blocks south of the Rio Grande. It's a touchstone for each of Sáenz's stories. His characters walk by, they might go in for a drink or to score, or they might just stay there for a while and let their story be told. Sáenz knows that the Kentucky Club, like special watering holes in all cities, is the contrary to borders. It welcomes Spanish and English, Mexicans and gringos, poor and rich, gay and straight, drug addicts and drunks, laughter and sadness, and even despair. It's a place of rich history and good drinks and cold beer and a long polished mahogany bar. Some days it smells like piss. "I'm going home to the other side." That's a strange statement, but you hear it all the time at the Kentucky Club. Benjamin Alire Sáenz is a highly regarded writer of fiction, poetry, and children's literature. Like these stories, his writing crosses borders and lands in our collective psyche. Poets & Writers Magazine named him one of the fifty most inspiring writers in the world. He's been a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and PEN Center's prestigious award for young adult fiction. Sáenz is the chair of the creative writing department of University of Texas at El Paso.

Download Sammy and Juliana in Hollywood by Benjamin Alire Saenz in PDF Full Free and published by Cinco Puntos Press. This book was released on 2011-04-15 with total page 305 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The “Hollywood” where Sammy Santos and Juliana Ríos live is not the West Coast one, the one with all the glitz and glitter. This Hollywood is a tough barrio at the edge of a small town in southern New Mexico. Sammy and this friends—members of the 1969 high school graduating class—face a world of racism, dress codes, war in Vietnam and barrio violence. In the summer before his senior year begins, Sammy falls in love with Juliana, a girl whose tough veneer disguises a world of hurt. By summer’s end, Juliana is dead. Sammy grieves, and in his grief, the memory of Juliana becomes his guide through this difficult year. Sammy is a smart kid, but he’s angry. He’s angry about Juliana’s death, he’s angry about the poverty his father and his sister must endure, he’s angry at his high school and its thinly disguised gringo racism, and he’s angry he might not be able to go to college. Benjamin Alire Sáenz, evoking the bittersweet ambience found in such novels as McMurtry’s The Last Picture Show, captures the essence of what it meant to grow up Chicano in small-town America in the late 1960s. Benjamin Alire Sáenz—novelist, poet, essayist and writer of children’s books—is at the forefront of the emerging Latino literatures. He has received both the Wallace Stegner Fellowship and the Lannan Fellowship, and is a recipient of the American Book Award. Born Mexican-American Catholic in the rural community of Picacho, New Mexico, he now teaches at the University of Texas at El Paso, and considers himself a “fronterizo,” a person of the border.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Frankie N. Stein is a 12-year-old monster fanatic, addicted, like most kids his age, to gothic video games. He is a big fan of Universal Studios horror movies such as Frankenstein, Dracula and The Werewolf. He is the middle child in a typical middle class family. His older sister, Alexa (16) is a whiny teenage brat; the younger sister, Kimberly (4) is an adorable little sweetheart. Father Albert is the prototypical middle class professional, slightly absentminded, but very loving to his children. Mom, Jennifer, is the disciplinarian of the household, but always supports her husband and family. Their next-door neighbors, Juana and Felipe Garcia are the busy body Fred and Ethel of the neighborhood. Albert's work (setting up computer systems for large corporations which he brings in huge crates from America) takes him to Frieburg, Germany, which is located right on the western edge of the fabled Black Forest, home of Sauebraten, cuckoo clocks and lots of dark, mystical spirits hiding in the medieval castles nestled deep in the woods. The Stein family are guests in a 17th century castle, converted into a hotel, and this is where young Frankie magically stumbles upon a secret passageway leading him to the ruined lab of one Victor Von Frankstein, who rumor has it, once lived here. A perfectly preserved monster falls out of the closet, and quite by accident, is brought back to life by Frankie. "One of the Funniest books I've ever read."

Book excerpt: Driving To The Darkness is a story of the 1960's about Splinters and Boomer in a decade of an asian war, anti war protests, assassinations in the country, civil rights, pot smoking and wonderful rock 'n roll music that the twins collected and listened to endlessly. It begins with the calm of the early sixties and a young president being elected to office. It shows the violence and near civil war that followed, as the psyche of the country became damaged from President Kennedy's killing to other killings and violence. The decade was also the emergence of incredible singers and songwriters, Bob Dylan and The Beatles. The intensity and fury of life in America became frightening on a national and a personal level.
