This book is really addicting...I finished it in one day because I couldn't put it down!!!!!
This is a sports story...but not entirely...if u know what I'm trying to get at here...
Anyway, this story is about Michael Arroyo, a twelve-year-old boy growing up in the Bronx, close to Yankee Staduim. He also has a really big secret that only two people besides him and his brother know.
One of these people is Michael's best friend, a kid named Manny. Their on the same baseball team, and have a shot at the Little League World Series, especially with Michael pitching. His fastballs are eighty miles an hour, plus he's tall. In fact, he's so good, coaches on other teams doubt he's only twelve, and demand a birth certificate for proof. But Michael's birth certificate is back home in Cuba, and there seems to be no way to get it back. On top of all this, he has a secret to keep, plus a very pretty, mysterious girl named Ellie that always seems to be disapeering...
I loved this book..make that LOVED...because the author really captures the struggles of the main character, plus he really understands the game and simply how preteens act.
READ THIS BOOK IF YOU EVEN HAVE A REMOTE UNDERSTANDING OF BASEBALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! U WON'T BE LET DOWN, TRUST ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
sorry bout the caps. but really, read this book.
