"Synopsis" by ,
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.


"Synopsis" by ,
A collection of short stories that captures the humor and poignance of growing up
"Synopsis" by ,
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" by ,
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.
