A fire in my hands: a book of poems

Book Cover
Average Rating
Pub. Date:
Few writers capture the everyday moments of life like Gary Soto. In direct and vivid poems, he draws from his own youth in California's Central Valley to portray the joys and sorrows of young people. His writing focuses on Latino characters, yet speaks to readers of all ethnicities. Acclaimed by educators since its original publication in 1998, A Fire in My Hands has been revised and expanded in this new edition. Old and new fans of Soto's work will welcome the return of his compelling poems. This title has been selected as a Common Core Text Exemplar (Grades 6-8, Poetry) Includes an introduction and an interview with the author.
