Local News by Gary Soto was a good book. I really liked it and I enjoyed reading it. I enjoyed reading this book because I got to relate to it a lot at least a little bit for each story. I think this book a lot of younger people can relate to it or adult that went trough some experiences that some characters went trough in some stories in the book. I like how Gary Soto does books with short stories like Baseball in April and this one. I like having short stories so I won’t get bored of just reading about the same thing for 100 or more pages I think that’s boring. A down side of having short stories is that there are so many stories that sometimes you don’t remember or it is hard to remember what happened or the details of the stories or maybe you can remember the details but only the stories you liked. When I was reading the stories I can really see it e used good imagery like in the story Blackmail I can really see Angel chasing Javier for the picture. I can see the setting and the facial expression of the characters. I think the older brother Javier is more like the anster sort of type like the kind everyone is scared to look at because they afraid they might et punched. I think Javier is like tat because I had friends that were the anster type and tats exactly how they acted and how they talked using words like ese o homes. Angel to me seems more like the smart kid tat is afraid to sow is strength or doesn’t like to sow it off but e seems really strong and buff but doesn’t like to sow it off. My favorite character in the story Blackmail is Javier because I like how he acts and I can relate to him because how I use to talk and act before.
Another way I can relate to this book was in the first story Blackmail. I can relate to it because one time me and my brother had my sisters camera and we went to a parade and we took pictures because my mom told us to take pictures for her because she couldn’t go. So my brother was recording me while I was doing some inappropriate things in front of the camera. He didn’t want to erase it because he said he was going to show my mom and I was chasing him around for the camera and I had to give him 10 bucks or else he would show it to my mom. I really recommend this book because I really think you would enjoy reading this book I think its funny and you can relate to it if you’re young or if you’re an adult it might remind you of your child hood.
