We want to share some of our favorite titles to help celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month, which …"honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latino Americans as we celebrate heritage rooted in all Latin American countries"

Today's title, Nosotros los animales / We the Animals by Justin Torres. The story of 3 young brothers and their violent love will speak to anyone raised with siblings:

“We wanted more. We knocked the butt ends of our forks against the table, tapped our spoons against our empty bowls; we were hungry. We wanted more volume, more riots. We turned up the knob on the TV until our ears ached with the shouts of angry men. We wanted more music on the radio; we wanted beats; we wanted rock. We wanted muscles on our skinny arms. We had bird bones, hollow and light, and we wanted more density, more weight. We were six snatching hands, six stomping feet; we were brothers, boys, three little kings locked in a feud for more.”
