Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lincoln Mendoza remains loyal to his former schools basketball team, even after he moves from the barrio to the suburbs and plays for his new schools team. “This touchingly realistic story explores the divided loyalties of a Hispanic basketball player who has recently moved from a poor neighborhood to a more affluent one. . . . Soto masterfully conveys the Hispanic-American experience.”-Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Lincoln Mendoza has to face his homeboys when his posh new school goes up against his old school on the basketball court.

Synopsis:

Lincoln is in a jam when his basketball team at his new school--where the students are rich and mostly white--faces his old team from the barrio on the boards. How can he play his best against his friends? No matter who wins, it looks like it will be lose-lose for Lincoln.

Synopsis:

Having moved from the barrio to the suburbs, Lincoln Mendoza is still loyal to his home team--even though he's playing basketball for another school now. When the two teams face each other, Lincoln learns something about winning, loyalty, change, and friendship.
