This book takes you right into the barrio with Danny, who has spent recent years living only with his white mother. He speaks no Spanish, but doesn't fit into his prep school. The families of his uncles have him for the summer and we have as little idea of what drives him to rarely speak as they do. All the other characters are vividly sketched as they, and baseball, open Danny to a fuller life. de la Pena's first book, Ball Don't Lie, is excellent too. I found his description of an established ghetto basketball game rivetting and accurate. I can't speak for the baseball in Mexican Whiteboy, but the story is interesting and ultimately uplifting.
