  Grade 7 Reviews
  Heat by Mike Lupica

Review by: Frankie N.
New Jersey, Grade 7

It was a New York Times #1 Best Seller.

Yes I did like the book Heat because:
It was an amazing emotional roller coaster ride about a boy named Michael Arroyo's quest to keep playing the sport he loves, baseball. He is trying to find his long lost birth certificate because the baseball league he is in does not believe he is age appropriate because of his pitching abilities. Meanwhile family struggles add to the 13 year old's problems. Both of his parents are dead and he and his older brother Carlos who is 17 don't have a legal guardian. His friend Manny, who is on his team supports him to keep pitching and playing baseball. On his journey to find the birth certificate a Major League baseball player and his daughter help along the way.
