Not as good as the first book, "I am a Taxi." This one is less exciting and more mature. The subject matter is probably a little higher than the reading level. There is a lot more information about politics and resistance of the coca growers. This book is also a historical fiction, following Diego as he participates in specific events in Bolivian history. It is still a good book and would be a valuable teaching tool for upper middle school to learn about peasant resistance. A very fast read.
