Delightufl Read
The Kids on the Block is a humorous gaze into the 'Rites of Passage' as Soapsuds and his unique friends make their way from adolescents to adults. Though the banter is mostly lighthearted, the author is not afraid to touch on serious issues such as death, abuse, hunger, suicide and other life struggles. I found 'The Kids on the Block' to be a delightful, charming and entertaining read!

--Chrissy K. McVay, author of Souls of the North Wind


Poignant Novel
There is a little something for everyone in The Kids on the Block, an enjoyable new book by author Mario Chavez. Tracing the lives of the “kids,” the author recaptures youth in a way few can as seen through the eyes of memorable characters like Casper, Guero Flu, Horns, Soapsuds, and even La Plaga. No matter which character you identify with most, don’t be surprised if you find yourself lost in your own childhood memories. It’s difficult not to laugh and shed tears while reading about life on the block. The author illuminates how those early relationships and experiences bind us regardless of the years that fly by all too quickly, and the various paths we inevitably take in life.

Return to the days of old and what it meant to be a kid in this poignant debut novel by author Mario Chavez. You’ll be glad you did.

--Ray LeCara, Jr., author of The Forgotten Prophecy

Reader Reviews for "The Kids on the Block"

Reviewed by Denise Richardson 4/2/2007
The Kids on the Block is a gripping and undeniably compelling story that will ignite genuine laughter, crocodile tears and a flood of your own childhood memories. Relatable and vivid character depictions will cause you to tap into your own formative years and the bonds you shaped while growing up on your own block. Reading The Kids on The Block is tantamount to stepping into a magnificent time machine that takes you on an uplifting and enriching journey, at the outset, peering into the lives of adolescents bonding on the block, and then following them into adulthood.

The memorable experiences spotlight both good and carefree times -as well as heartbreaking events. As you become immersed in the lives of these characters, you can’t help but conjure up your own emotional recollections of youth. The Kids on The Block is a thoroughly captivating, entertaining and thought provoking saga –one you will be glad you read, and one you won’t soon forget.
