From the author of Ball Don t Lie comes another excellent book that nails baseball but is about much Danny is wicked gifted when it comes to baseball he can knock baseballs out of the park and his pitching maxes out the meter at the local fair even when he was smashed But he couldn t throw anything but wild pitches the tryouts at his prep school and not even he can understand why His number one theory though is that things would be different if his dad were still around Not just baseball either If his dad hadn t left then maybe Danny wouldn t be stuck feeling stupid when his relatives in National City tell jokes in Spanish Danny s mom who s white can t help him out in that department The official word is that Danny s dad took off to Ensenada Mexico but it starts looking like there s to the story than that as Danny spends the summer with his dad s family in National City a mostly Latino pocket of greater San DiegoBut the eventual revelation regarding Danny s dad is much less important than Danny figuring out how to be himself a task made a little bit easier with the jokey easy going crew his cousin Sofia hangs with Danny s best friend turns out to be Uno the same half black half Mexican kid who welcomed Danny to the neighborhood by busting his face at the beginning of the summer Things are good but they re also ugly the way things are in real life What matters is that Danny starts finding his footing in that real life and baseball takes its place as one bad ass game that helps him bring things into focus without beating up on himself

Read & Download Mexican WhiteBoy 104 Matt de la Pena » 4 characters characters Mexican WhiteBoy Ing the summer with his dad’s family Only to find himself he may just have to face the demons he refuses to see the demons that are right in front of his face And open up to a friendship he never saw comingSet in the alleys and on the ball fields of San Diego County Mexican Whiteboy is a story of friendship acceptance and the struggle to find your identity in a world of definitions. In Mexican WhiteBoy Matt de la Pe a tells the story of Danny Lopez a half Mexican half White 16 year old with a crazy fastball but lacking the confidence to show his skills At the start of the summer Danny s mom and sister have gone to live with his mom s new boyfriend in his fancy condo in San Francisco but Danny chooses to stay at his uncle and aunt s place in National City CA a place where his polo shirts cargo shorts and slip on Vans don t uite fit in with the neighborhood kids pro jerseys gold and silver chains and Timberlands On the surface of the story the reader follows Danny on his journey to fit in and figure out his baseball problems can t control his pitching aim but once Danny meets Uno a young black teen searching for his own answers and struggling to rekindle the relationship with his father the reader begins to see the problems that plague a deeper part of Danny Danny hasn t seen his father in 3 years and he is hoping to find the answers that would lead him to understand and see his father once again Through their trust and faith in each other Danny and Uno help each other to realize their potential and not only find the answers they re looking for but also find themselves in the process There is so much to this book than meets the eye The fact that the main character is a teenage boy who plays baseball will hook any high school boy even girls because Danny is just so likeable and easy to root for but as they go further into the story the deeper issues and themes become apparent and these are what makes the story memorable and not simply a story about baseball No worries if you don t know anything about baseball the author makes it easy to connect with Danny and appreciate the baseball premise of the story The book itself would work in any unit about family relationships self discovery racial identity and friendship I would include this book in any high school classroom library There are some instances of alcohol smoking and very mild sexual references which would lead me to suggest this for high school students although the language is easy enough for a mature middle schooler to understand One point about language de la Pe a naturally weaves both English and Spanish dialect and language throughout the story so this would be an inviting text for reluctant Spanish ELL students to read
