Compared to some of the other books I've read, I didn't like this as much, though I did think it had merit. I liked how the main character, Chico, excelled at math, making it clear that migrant workers are not stupid and uneducated. I also liked how he stood up to the school bullies without violence. I appreciated the portrayal of strength and courage. I also liked the subtle message about being polite and giving people a chance before deciding how they are or will be.
