The Boy Kings of Texas, by Domingo Martinez

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER AND NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST
The Boy Kings of Texas
A lyrical and authentic book that recounts the story of a border-town family in Brownsville, Texas in the 1980’s, as each member of the family desperately tries to assimilate and escape life on the border to become “real”¬†Americans, even at the expense of their shared family history. This is really un-mined territory in the memoir genre that gives in-depth insight into a previously unexplored corner of America.
