Paul Langan & Ben Alirez have done it again ladies and gentlemen.(mostly gentlemen). Martin Luna is a troubled teenager who soon realizes life is too short to go down the wrong path when his little brother is shot and killed right before him. Martin lives in a Chicano neighborhood and hangs out with his trouble making friends also known as the “The Family”. Martins mother doesn’t want to lose another son so she moves them to a different school and neighborhood. Martin’s first day of school is a rough one until he meets Vicky (one of the smartest and prettiest girls in school. But he soon realizes that one of “The Family” is guilty for the death of Martin’s little brother Huero. If I had to rate it I would give it 4.5 because to some people the storyline is great, the energy of the book is great, everything is great in my opinion. His troubles were only the start of a new chapter. Seriously this book is for you.

Martin was a cool guy to hang around if u actually knew him. His mom did like the friends he hung around because she thought they were gangbangers. Martins
brother Eric also known as Huero loved hanging wit Marty even when he didnt want hinm to. One day Huero was wanting to see wat Marty was doing. Then everything went wrong. Someone in a white sedan
came up the alley and shot at Marty and the homies and ended up shooting Huero. Laying their motionless Marty ran and held his brother in his arms as the blood from his head ran down his hand. Marty
wanted revenge. To keep from losing another son his mom quickly moved across town. He had to attend Bluford High School where he met a beautiful girl name Vicky. When the homies found out who killed
Huero Marty was faced with a decision. Kill the person who took his brothers life or continue to live the good life. He payed for not shooting the guy but it was the right decision

This book is great. Martin had a problem. His little brother was shot and he wanted to get revenge on the shooter. We know who the shooter is, but you need to find out by reading this book. Will Martin make the right choice? Will he get revenge?

Martin Luna, a teenage boy who always chooses his gang over his little brother goes through hard decisions. His younger brother gets shot and passes away, so it causes Martin to be a cross roads. Martin has to choose if he wants revenge or his friends, his mother, or a pretty girl named Vicky.
Well here it is, I absolutely love this book. It was one of my favorite. All teens should read it because it says how to deal with problems everyday in high school. The book used a lot of description which made me feel like I was there and I was going through the problems with him.

Have you ever read a book that started slow but the ending was great? In the book Brother in Arms this is the case. This book is a quick read that starts slow but ends with action.

Then all of a sudden his mom makes Martin move leaving his buddies and his school. Martin is rebellious about moving but keeps in touch with his friends who are trying to find the person who shot Huero. Will they find him? Will they kill him? You'll have to read the book to find out.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Have you ever avoided something but when it's gone you realize how bad you needed it? Well the book Brothers In Arms is a good example of that. This book is about a boy named Martin Luna and he chooses his homeboys over his little brother Huero witch mean light-skinned in Spanish. But one day his brother comes looking for him to try to hang out with him But Martin chases him away. As Huero is leaving an all white Sudan is coming towards them. So Huero comes back to warn them. But they are faster than him. As he was riding his bike he jump into Martins hands and he is shot in the head. He dies in Martins own hands. But it turns out the bullet was meant for Frankie Martins older friend he is a gang-banger. Martin really needs Huero to survive. He changes schools he moves his old friends are breaking into his house and hunting him down. It was a good book, but I didn't like how they used the Spanish words and didn't tell you what they meant. Martin Luna is strong and tough. He is dealing with a lot at home. He does not know what to do with him-self. He is lost and stuck on a two way street. I give this book 3 strong dejected, sturdy, and sorrow. The conflict is Frankie beats up Martin and hunting him down. I think the theme of this book is to be careful and watch who you hang out with. But overall it was a good book.Was this review helpful?

Imagine something very tragic has occurred and you're little brother is gone! This is the situation that Martin Luna is faced with in the book Brother in Arms.
I think this book is a very good book. Here are some reasons why I think this; this book is very realistic with bullies and problems kids face in school. Another reason why I think this is because Martin Luna steps up to the bullies in school.
The main character (Martin Luna) has an extremely short temper with Latino heritage.
There are two types of conflict in this book, Man Vs. Man and Man Vs. Himself. The reason it is Man Vs. Man is because there is bullying and fighting. The reason it is Man Vs. Himself is because Martin needs to decide whether to make a terrible choice that will haunt him forever or make the right choice and make things right. I would highly recommend reading this book, it is a heart-pounding, action-filled book; and is an extraordinarily good read.

Do you want to read an awesome book? Then read brothers in arms. It is full of challenges and anger. Some scenes with anger are when martin has to move to a different part of the city. There're also some happy scenes. For example martin seeing the girl of his dreams. These are only a few reasons to read this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
