"Unique in its gritty realism and honest portrayal of the complexities of life for inner-city teens...De la Peña poignantly conveys the message that, despite obstacles, you must believe in yourself and shape your own future."-The Horn Book Magazine
"De la Peña does an excellent job...Readers see themselves in Danny, Uno, and Sofia, whether or not they share their backgrounds. In the end, they find themselves wanting the characters to succeed."-VOYA
"The baseball scenes...sizzle like Danny's fastball...Danny's struggle to find his place will speak strongly to all teens, but especially to those of mixed race."-Booklist
"De la Peña blends sports and street together in a satisfying search for personal identity."-Kirkus Reviews
"Deftly explores the subject of interracial mixing."-Multicultural Review
"Matt de la Peña has done the impossible; fired a perfect fastball on the low inside corner and hit a towering home run at the same time. A tough, funny, edgy, hopeful story about friendship under fire and love in its true sense."-Chris Crutcher, author of Deadline and Whale Talk
"Mexican WhiteBoy...shows that no matter what obstacles you face, you can still reach your dreams with a positive attitude. This is more than a book about a baseball player--this is a book about life."-Curtis Granderson, New York Mets outfielder

Please understand, reading is not easy for my guys, so I read parts of it and I read the first three chapters alond so the kids could get into the story, but now, I am making them read paragraphs i select aloud with expression and they LOVE doing it. I am not usually a fan of Round Robin instruction and i would NOT try this in a mainstream classroom with struggling readers, because that kind of nerve wracking experience can be very hard on dyslexic kids. I am doing this with very small groups (1-2-3) of students and the dialogue is so rich and familiar that my kids are throwing their acting skills into overdrive. They are in love- as am I.
BUY THIS BOOK!
I character has feeling and thoughts we all feel when looking at the future.
He has respect for his family and even though they are related he knows theres a boundry that is obvious to them all even if they choose not to aknowleadge it.
