What a pleasure to see historical fiction for younger readers that includes Latino characters! Lorenzo's Secret Mission is based on historical fact, but readers should not equate 'historical fact' with 'dull.' After his father died in San Antonio, Texas, fifteen-year-old Lorenzo Bannister set out to fulfill his father's dying wish--to deliver a letter to the grandfather he has never seen in Virginia. In the action-filled adventure that ensues, Lorenzo becomes involved in the fight for freedom now known as the American Revolution. The authors have successfully integrated facts about the contributions of Hispanics to the cause of liberty into an interesting lively story that will entertain and teach about history. I look forward to a sequel!
