Como una marmota asustada, los shorts de gimnasia se meten en mi trasero.

¿No te gustaría leer un libro que comenzara así?

Lupe Wong quiere ser la primera mujer lanzadora en las Grandes Ligas. Durante toda su infancia, ha defendido diversas causas. Algunas, dignas . . . como la expansión de las opciones de raza en los exámenes escolares. Otras, menos dignas . . . como quejarse al canal BBC sobre la duración entre temporadas de Doctor Who.

Lupe necesita una A en todas las clases para conocer a su lanzador favorito, Fu Li Hernández, un mexi-chino como ella. ¿Qué pasa cuando el baile de country llega al gimnasio? Lupe no se quedará con los brazos cruzados.

No es para nada habitual que el debut de un libro presente a un personaje tan memorable, y con tanto humor e inteligencia emocional, come Lupe. Hasta los fanáticos del baile de country estarán de acuerdo . . .

Booklist Review: "Seventh-grader Lupe Wong needs straight As in order to meet her sports hero, pitcher Fu Li Hernandez, who shares her Chinese and Mexican heritage. But when her gym class introduces square dancing, dance-averse Lupe is set on finding a way to quash the issue. Readers will delight in charismatic Lupe's determination to stand up for her beliefs and the humor and grace infused through her everyday life. Higuera has crafted a close-knit, genuine, multicultural group of friends, and readers of blended backgrounds will see themselves in Lupe and her Chinacan/Mexinese family. Lupe's eager, can-do attitude shines through the Spanish translation here, which features upbeat dialogue that exemplifies her larger-than-life personality. Whether through baseball or her resolve to change the rules, Lupe is bound to garner countless fans who be rooting for her throughout the ups and downs."
