  Heat by Mike Lupica

Review by: Ryan M.
New York, Grade 7

The settingt of the book takes place in New York City. Then to a little apartment. Then to YANKEE STADIUM.

The main charcter Michael and his brother carlos are bestfriend s ever sense coming to the usa sense there brothers and all . When he starts playing baseball he is really good or at least that is what everybody says. Someone that really helps you threw the story is El grande a famous Yankees player who pitches. was from cuba but sailed into the U.S.A on a raft. When he is living in a apparment the future didnt look to bright for Michael. With his brother working like 5 jobs it was hard to keep the house running. But when he stops a robber from stealing a purse with a baseball everyone is impressed. People start wondering who he is but if he gets figured out he will be sepertaed from his brother to foster homes or worse sent back to cuba.

I liked the book because i liked the game of baseball and when i read the summary it sounded pretty good.
