Any baseball lovers out there? If so, "Heat" is a perfect read for you. Michael Arroyo is twelve and is a seriously great pitcher. He wants to lead his team to the Little League World Series, but his personal life might get in the way. He is an orphan from Cuba and the only family he has in the United States is his brother, Carlos. If Social services finds out, the boys could be separated or sent back to Cuba. People start asking questions because Michael is so good for his age, which causes their secret to be blown. Michael discovers that family can come from many different sources. This book is great for anyone who loves sports and family stories. Perfect for middle schoolers. ( )

"Michael Arroyo is a great baseball player. He gets questioned about his age and must find his birth certificate before he gets banned from his baseball league."

Michael Arroyo has a pitching arm that throws serious heat along with aspirations of leading his team all the way to the Little League World Series. But his firepower is nothing compared to the heat Michael faces in his day-to-day life. Newly orphaned after his father led the family's escape from Cuba, Michael's only family is his seventeen-year old brother Carlos. If Social Services hears of their situation, they will be separated in the foster-care system--or worse, sent back to Cuba.

The book Heat is a thriller for all baseball fans. To me its just another great written book, by Mike Lupica. The story is about Michael Arroyo who has an arm that throws serious heat. But his firepower is nothing compared to what he faces pretty much every day of his life. Newly orphaned after his father led his family's escape from Cuba. Michael's only family is his seventeen year old brother Carlos.
This book really inspires me to be a better person. To think about stuff that happen to people, like in this book. It just makes me thankful for the ability and family that i have. This book makes me feel extremely special. Besides that point, the book fascinated me with Michael life. Overall i highly recommend this book its a real jaw dropper. ( )

Huh. I did not expect this. I don't give a **** about sports, especially baseball. But baseball is only the vehicle of a much better story. One of belonging. I liked this a lot. ( )

Mrs. Cora walked slowly up River Avenue in the summer heat, secure within the boundaries of her world. The great ballpark, Yankee Stadium, was on her right.
