    1. Very different, but also interesting. It was nice to read something with a smattering of spanish involved in the text. I thought the storyline was a bit odd and somewhat lacking of an actual audience of interest in it.

    2. this book is about a boy who is really poor and his mother dies. Then his father goes to america and the boy is sent to america to find his father. He gets into so much problems too.
