Overview

¿Cuánto vale la vida de un joven atleta?



¿Quién los cuida?



Cada año, el sistema de busca-talentos universitario monitorea el desempeño, la fortaleza, la velocidad y hasta el promedio de notas de los atletas, pero no logra hacer lo mismo cuando se trata de su salud. Los padres, ajenos al peligro, no toman en cuenta la posibilidad de una tragedia. Mientras tanto, cientos de atletas siguen muriendo repentinamente en pistas y campos de juego en todo el país.



Buscando mi estrella es la carta de una madre a un hijo extraordinario, su hijo dorado, el que se fue antes de tiempo. Es la historia real de Ramiro "Toti" Méndez, un jugador de béisbol universitario, estrella en Florida International University (FIU) y Westminster Christian High School de Miami. Toti, cuyos empeños atléticosadornaron los titulares locales, murió de una enfermedad cardíaca no detectada, sin saber la historia más importante de su vida: su mamá nunca tuvo la oportunidad de explicarle a Toti el secreto de su nacimiento.



El progreso que ha alcanzado Maruchi Mendez en nombre de su hijo está marcado por memorias y lágrimas. Pero, día a día, reafirman el amor de una madre y su determinación para contarle al mundo la historia de su hijo para prevenir que otros atletas pierdan su vida innecesariamente.

    I just finished the book. Read it in one day and I loved it. A very honest and moving story of a woman with a lot of pain, and yet it leaves you inspired. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. Loved her relationship with her son and her poetic style. A must read for every Mother with young children. Makes me want to visit Spain!!
