Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An inspiring YA debut from the author of Dangerous Minds.

Eddie Corazon is angry. Hes also very smart. But hes working pretty hard at being a juvenile delinquent. He blows off school, even though hes a secret reader. He hangs with his cousins, who will always back him up—when they arent in jail.

Then along comes Lupe, who makes his blood race. She sees something in Eddie he doesnt even see in himself. A heart, and a mind, and something more: a poet. But in Eddies world, its a thin line between tragedy and glory. And what goes down is entirely in Eddies hands.

Gripping, thought-provoking, and hopeful, Muchacho is a rare and inspiring story about one teens determination to fight his circumstances and shape his own destiny.

From the Hardcover edition.
