Good book, every chapter a different character who's paths cross in someway. Enjoyed the book.

Skyhorse's stories bring to life the interesting characters and culture of Echo Park, one of L.A.'s most graphically distinct neighbourhoods. From the housemaid who works in Hollywood Hills to the day labourer who witnesses a murder, Skyhorse's first and second generation Mexican American characters and their children struggle to assimilate into American culture.

It was good. The first 2 chapters were a bit hard to get through but other than that, it was an overall good read.
