Read full description of the books Muchacho:
"An inspiring YA debut from the author of "Dangerous Minds."
"Eddie Corazon is angry. He's also very smart. But he's working pretty hard at being a juvenile delinquent. He blows off school, even though he's a secret reader. He hangs with his cousins, who will always back him up--when they aren't in jail.
Then along comes Lupe, who makes his blood race. She sees something in Eddie he doesn't even see in himself. A heart, and a mind, and something more: a poet. But in Eddie's world, it's a thin line between tragedy and glory. And what goes down is entirely in Eddie's hands.
Gripping, thought-provoking, and hopeful, "Muchacho "is a rare and inspiring story about one teen's determination to fight his circumstances and shape his own destiny.
