    Wow!!!

    I absolutely love this book! My LA teacher was making us read this book. After a few pages, I was hooked. It's real, I guess. It doesn't create some sort of plot that will never happen in real life: many people can definitely relate to this book. I would totally reccommend this book. Warning: This book has many cuss words, and some situations that you don't want young children reading. I suggest that teens read this book.

    more from this reviewer

    Mexican Whiteboy is a must read!

    For school I had to get a book with a theme of tolerance, and most of my classmates were choosing books about the holocaust. I too was going to read a holocaust book, but then I found this one. I read it very quickly and could hardly put it down! I've never read a book written from a boy's point of view (besides being forced to in class) and was a little unsure of reading a book about from a boy's point of view and about baseball, but I genuinely enjoyed it! Girls, if you don't think you'll like this book because it's a boy telling the story, I'm sure you will love it! I'd recommend this book to any teenager.

    An Amazing Book

    Mexican Whiteboy by Mat De La Pena is a book that takes place in the present day National City, California. Danny, the book's main character, is a half white half Mexican teenage boy who spends the summer with his dad's family in National City, with hopes of finding his dad who left him at a young age. While he is in National City he makes a friend named Uno through baseball, Danny is an amazing pitcher who lacks control but still helps Uno pull of hustles. Throughout the book Danny has realizations about his dad, his family, and street violence. This book is a must-read for all readers. It is an inspirational book that many teenagers can relate to.

    Important Book

    I work in the public school system and so many of our kids are of a mixed race back background these days. I was so happy to been pointed in the direction of this wonderfully complex and sweet novel about a BOY trying to figure out who he is. Absolutely recommend this to everybody, but especially teens!
