    "The book itself is well written and has a good plot with several twists. The author, himself, is not from San Antonio. He was born in Michigan and lives in Los Angeles."

    "This is a decent book by Rick Riordian. However, this series is for young adults and children. I think there are probably books with more universal appeal than this choice."

    "It's a pretty fine children's book, and it'll provide great entertainment for kids, but its hardly the best book you can get from a San Antonio author. Still though, it isn't a bad book, in fact it is pretty good. There's just better examples you could come up with."

    "In hardcover for the first time--on the tenth anniversary of its initial publication--the greatly admired and bestselling book about a young girl growing up in the Latino section of Chicago. Sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes deeply joyous, this novel depicts a new American landscape through its multiple characters."
