Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Japan for the summer to practice the martial art of kempo, Lincoln sometimes feels like little more than a brown boy in a white gi. Yet with the help of his Japanese brother, Mitsuo, Lincoln sees that people everywhere, whether friend or kempo opponent, share passions much like his own--for baseball, family traditions, and new friendships.

Synopsis:

Lincoln Mendoza thought life as a Mexican-American in the States was tough, but that's nothing compared to what he finds when he goes to Japan.

I used this book with a jr. high special ed. literature class. The class was all boys, and they loved this story! Soto makes it easy to identify with the characters - Lincoln, Tony, and Mitsuo - and their experiences as exchange students.
