A very enjoyable and hopeful read about the complex family relationships we sometimes have. The story alternates between two teenage boys: Danny (half white, half Mexican) and Uno (half Mexican, half black) united by difficult circumstances, a search for their own identities and a path to success, and baseball. Both of the boys' struggles are presented in realistic and engaging ways. ( )

Danny's tall and skinny. Even though he's not "built", his arms are long enough to give his pitch a power so fierce that any college scout would sign him on the spot. Ninety-five-mile-an-hour fastball, but the boy's not even on a team. Every time he gets up on the mound, he loses it. Ball ends up so far out of the strike zone it's laughable.

But at his private school, they don't expect much else from him. Danny's brown. Half-Mexican brown. And growing up in San Diego, that close to the border, means everyone knows exactly who he is before he even opens his mouth. Before they find out he can't speak Spanish, and before they realize his mom has blond hair and blue eyes, they've got him pegged. But it works the other way too. And Danny's convinced it's his whiteness that sent his father back to Mexico.

That's why he's spending 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 coming. ( )

I kind of feel I can relate to Danny. That's why I loved the book so much. And I love Danny! He's such a sweetheart. ( )

I enjoyed reading this young adult novel about friendships, family and identity. My favorite characters were Danny and Uno. I loved how their friendship evolved and bloomed. Peña is a talented author and I can see why his books win award after award. I look forward to reading more of his work (I absolutely loved The Last Stop on Market Street). ( )

Danny who doesn't feel at home either in his white school or at his Mexican family's home wants to live with his father's family for the summer. Danny doesn't speak above a murmur and he loves baseball but did not make his high school team. Over the summer his cousin takes him under his wing, he falls in love and gets a best friend. Danny also suffers from anxiety and picks his skin when he feels stressed out. Back home Danny's mother temporarily moves in with her boyfriend, which makes Danny feel even more at sea.
