I really liked this book and i gave this book a 4 star because i love this author this author put every single detail about the book and the charterer for every character he gives where they live do they work do they go to school what do they do etc. Also the author has evidence for problems and solutions for example when Ernesto really liked a girl and had a girlfriend what was his evidence for solving it. Also the author has so many problems in the book so that each character has a problem and ...more
I have read a lot of hi/lo type fiction. This title was very good for our struggling readers. It is part of a new street lit series by Saddleback called Urban Underground. I purchased the entire series, but this is the only title I have read so far. It compares quite well to the Orca Soundings and Orca Currents series, though these are about twice the length at 200 or so pages. I have had a few students check the Urban Underground books out this year and they have been pretty excited about them. ...more
absolutely loved this book. learned something from the situation with Sarah and her mom, Elena. i was kind of upset at one point when Elena tried to pin the stealing on Paul, but in the end Abel saved the day and he and Claudia's job. Elena and Sarah were reunited and it was all good after that

Its pretty cool because is about the problem that most teenager goes through with their, when they believe what you can do.
This continues the Urban Underground series featuring Hispanic teens at Cesar Chavez High School. Abel faces up to his mother who thinks he will never amount to anything and vows to make his dream of becoming a chef come true..
We all need a friend like Ernesto to remind us that the fight for our dreams is crucial & critical. The story simply gave me hope.
