Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: 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.From the Hardcover edition.
