Synopses & Reviews
Margarito acts like any other eleven-year-old aficionado of lucha libre. He worships all the players. But in the summer just before sixth grade, he tumbles over the railing at a match in San Antonio and makes a connection to the world of Mexican wrestling that will ultimately connect himand#151;maybe by blood!and#151;to the greatest hero of all time: the Guardian Angel.
A 2012 Pura Belprand#233; Author Honor Award winner!
Xavier Garza was born in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. An enthusiastic author, artist, teacher, and storyteller, his work is a lively documentation of the dreams, superstitions, and heroes in the bigger-than-life world of south Texas.
Margarito's summber vacation resembles one of his beloved lucha libre movies: grudge matches, fantastic villains and the Guardian Angel.
