Bodega DreamsBodega Dreams by Ernesto Quiñonez
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Excellent glimpse into the social dynamics of the Puerto Rican community of East Harlem in the 1980s. Quinonez sophisticated character development exposes the protagonists' hopes, fears, desires, and conflicted feelings regarding personal goals and loyalty to the community. He also poses the question whether questionable practices can be justified if the profits are used to better the community.

I enjoyed this book.
