This is an interesting story about a 13 year old named Ricky who runs away to Mexico for a chance to avenge his Mother's death. The intense story gives Americans a greater appreciation for those who immigrate (on a small degree) by empathizing with the little girl he encounters and becomes friends with in Mexico. The entire time you are drawn in because the writing is very well done, and is not too redundant or slow. Sparrow Hawk Red is an imaginative adventure that (though unlikely) has a unique story line and fun thrill ride at the end. I was impressed with Ben Mikaelsen... this was the first book I read from him. The one thing I might recommend is knowing a little Spanish, I think it would make the book more enjoyable for you. No warnings or problems, but a great story overall. If you like fun stories of run-aways trying to get revenge, this is right up your alley.
