Editors Note Ninth-grader Rawly Sanchez's life is hard--his brother is in prison, he works at his mother's restaurant to help make ends meet, he is failing algebra, and the girl he has a crush on does not know he exists--but when his dramatic and impulsive rescue of a wealthy celebrity from a flooded creek makes him famous, he does not know what to think about his newfound popularity.
Editors Note 1 Rawly Sanchez's life sucks. It's Friday night, and he's struggling with algebra homework in his mom's restaurant, which is also on the brink of failure. Ever since his dad died, his mother has had to work twice as hard. And starting next Saturday, algebra tutoring means he won't get to see his brother Jaime, who's in prison. His whole life takes a turn for the better when he rescues a famous young woman from a flooded creek. The dramatic rescue is recorded and soon Rawly is being hailed as a hero. Suddenly, every reporter in town wants to interview him. Even kids who avoided him in the past now want to hang out with him. It's impossible to resist the popular quarterback's invitation to hang out, even if it means ditching his best friend. And best of all, Miyoko, the most beautiful girl in school, wants to go out with him. But, do theyreally like him? Or do they just want to take advantage of his new-found fame? Acclaimed author and educator Ray Villareal writes another fast-paced novel for teens about the value of celebrity and true friendship. Spotlighting teens' interest in comic books and super heroes, even the most reluctant readers will be sucked in.
