Max, or Maximillian as only his mother calls him, is going on 6th grade and is obsessed with lucha libre - a form of wrestling like WWF in Mexico involving masks. Max's favorite luchador is the Guardian Angel. The mystery in the subtitle of the book is the identity of the Angel, which happens to be Max's close relative. Don't worry there's no need for a spoiler alert as this "mystery" is solved less than halfway through the book. The Angel reveals his identity to the entire family who had taken him for dead and spends quality time with Max, and uncle Lalo training for a massive luchalibre fight! A fun book for a 2nd - 5th grader in English and Spanish that brings you into the world of La Lucha!
