Editorial Reviews

Tri-State YA Book Review Committee
"A good choice for younger teen readers as well as for more mature readers. Bilingual books like this one with decent language and plot line are important for Spanish-speaking readers. Both the middle school and high school libraries need this book for their bilingual section!"

Read an Excerpt

El policía se sacó algo del bolsillo. Era una fotografía.

—¿Lo reconoces, Josh?"

No podía creerlo. Me la quedé mirando fijimente.

Andrew también la miró. Después de unos segundos dijo:

—Parece el garrote que papá te dio.

—¿No son ésas tus iniciales, Josh? —preguntó la mujer policía.

Contesté que sí con la cabenza.

—Fue con esto con lo que golpearon a Scott. Lo tenemos en la estación de policía, Josh. Además de tus iniciales, tiene tus huellas digitales.
