    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.

    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.

    Mexican Whiteboy. By T.E. in College Comp. 1st period

    Mexican Whiteboy was a book that had to be read in one sitting, not only because it was good, but because it was easier to follow that way. The book starts out with a fight between two half mexican boys - only difference: one is half black, Uno, and the other half white, Danny. However, the fight doesn't stop them from becoming good friends. They then set out to earn five hundred dollars so Uno can move out of the ghetto and live with his dad. Uno and Danny make the money by hustling baseball. Danny is an amazing pitcher with some control issues. Uno is an amazing Catcher with the will to help Danny through it. Mexican Whiteboy is an adventurous tale about how you can find friends in the most unlikely of places, and how you can find yourself making the best out of something that isn't very good. The book touches on some sensative points such as racism, gang violence, and underage abuse of drugs and alcohol, but the author does it in a way that it can't be taken offensively. I enjoyed this book because it made me think how mexicans outcast those who have any white in them, and how hard some people have it. Everyone will like Mexican Whiteboy because it has many genres of reading in it - sports, adventure, drama, and mystery. It's a quick, easy and thought - provoking read. Enjoy!

    I loved this book. I had to read this book for English class and it turned out to be a very well written book. I liked how the two main characters faced the same conflict in a way and how they overcame the conflict, i would recommend this book to anyone trying to read a book about baseball and action.

    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!
