Heat By Mike LupicaHeat is mostly a book about a young 12 year old boy named Miguel or what he likes to go by is Michael Arroyo He is a only a little leaguer but the arm of an 18 year old, and the coaches want a birth certificate I think that heat is an outstanding book to read, just because it has an inspirational and powerful meaning behind it I think this book could honestly be read at any age level as you wish, so go get a copy of it today

I really enjoyed this book I knew I would like this book because in a way it s similar to one of my favorite authors styles of writing Ta Nehisi Coates writes about childhood struggles and growing up in a lifestyle that s difficult and proposes a lot of conflict and adversity within your life, which sometimes seems unfair but that s just how it is sometimes An in The heat by Mike Lupica you see this with Michael arroyo because he s here from Cuba with his brother illegally because they re father [...]
This book was very good with drawing you in and making you curious The fact that Michael and his brother are fighting to hide the fact that their dad died and Michael isn t legally living with his brother who is 17 The way the author incorporates sports with all the problems is very good The author is very good at making what you think wouldn t be a very interesting topic super interesting But at time the book was a bit boring.
Hello my name is Giuseppe Mattera, I think that the author wrote this book for many reasons, one of the reasons is to get people to work for their dreams Because in the book the author tells us that Michael, his father, and brother sneak into the United States to look for new opportunities The family moves to New York city in search for jobs A few months after they move to the big city Michael s father dies They face many problems in the United States Michael s brother works many jobs just to pr [...]
