Mexican WhiteBoy

by Matt de la Peña

Mexican whiteboy

The setting is in San Diego more specifically National City. It's about a teenager that's Mexican and white and how he struggles to fit in with the Mexican community because he doesn't know Spanish. His struggles become even worse once he moves in with his uncle and aunt because their entire neighborhood speaks it.

This book was slow in the beginning but as I kept reading, it got better over time. This book is good because of the way it portrays how one feels when they don't fit in and I connected with the main character in that way.

I would recommend this book if you struggle with feeling like you don't fit in with a certain community. This book also revolves around baseball and that helps the main character fit in with more people.
