Very nice book, I fell in love with Carrlos(two r's-his famous way of spelling) Duarte and his antics. Spectacular piece of fiction!

This book was great! I only wish it was longer. Carrlos Duarte is a very compelling narrator and his adventures are fun and yet filled with heart.

Great Teen Fiction.
