an idea of what he should do to get the plane he got a bike and said that he the taco runner for the people at Rancho Camacho and when he got back he put these plants in the burritos and tacos which made them go to the bathroom Read the book to find out the rest The most interesting part of this story is the sympathetic treatment of the homeless children doing everything to survive on the streets of Mexico Soledad's character was compelling than the main character whose name I can't even remember at the moment The story ran long though and I struggled to finish This book is geared at a late elementary middle school audience It's a nice introduction to differences in culture and socio economic status It's also a good adventure though the story lags a bit in the middle and feels uite rushed abrupt at the end At first I wasn't sure if I wanted to read this book to my children but it's not as scary as it sounds It's clean and safe to read to a 5th Grader and up I'm 12 Mexican and enjoying reading about about a kid living on the streets in Mexico getting justice on his own against gang members I read this book when I was about thirteen and it changed my life forever It's harsh portrayal of Mexico through the eyes of a teen was an amazing ride to a world I knew nothing about Great read for a middle school reading group but we were all a little disappointed with the abrupt ending It was a little bland in the beginning but got better towards the end I loved reading this book so much I couldnt put it down 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 uniue 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 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 This was a favorite in middle school and as I find myself working with middle schoolers I'm trying to find uality literature for them Pros Exciting plotSome Spanish wordsEncourages acceptance of other peopleculturesReminds readers that what they see on the outside may not be the same as what's on the insideConsNot a particularly challenging readI'd highly recommend this book for use in class or for fun reading It's especially good for kids who don't enjoy reading because it's fast paced and exciting
