  Breaking Through by Francisco Jiménez

Review by: Josh B.
Connecticut, Grade 7

It is very inspiring.

Breaking Through took place in Santa Maria. The main character was a boy named Francisco. The story was about his life and all of the hardships he had to go through to get to where he is now.
Although it was inspiring I didn't like the book. Being in 7th grade myself I am used to reading books with action where there is a climax every chapter. In this book I found myself waiting for a climax where something major happened to Francisco but it never did. I think this book would be great for non-fiction readers but not for me. I did not enjoy reading this.
I would give this book 2 out of 5 stars.
