Description



About the Book



In this inspiring multicultural story, a young Guatemalan boy triumphs over poverty and abandonment to find love and a sense of self-respect. "Genuine and touching, the book has much to tell readers who are acquainted only with a land of plenty".--The New Yorker. An NCTE Notable Children's Trade Book.



Book Synopsis



"Seven-year-old Juan lives in Guatemala, a place of stunning beauty and grim economic reality. Abandoned by his mother, Juan lives with his grandmother and shines shoes. He passionately wants to attend school, but fears Grandmother will say no. Finally gathering his courage, he is surprised when she not only agrees to send him to school but also chides him about the importance of standing up for himself. Juan tells this bittersweet story, which reads smoothly and powerfully on several levels, with warmth and dignity."--Booklist.
