They Call Me Güero
A Border Kid's PoemsBook - 2018
In Spanish, "Güero" is a nickname for guys with pale skin, Latino or Anglo. Butr make no mistake: our red-headed, freckled hero is pure mexicano, like Canelo Álvarez, the Mexican boxer. Güero is also a nerd - reader, gamer, musician - who runs with a squad of misfits like him, Los Bobbys. Sure, they get in trouble like anybody else, and like other middle-school boys, they discover girls. Watch out for Joanna! She's tough as nails. But trusting in his family's traditions, his accordion and his bookworm squad, he faces seventh grade with book smarts and a big heart. Life is tough for a border kid, but Güero has figured out how to cope. He writes poetry. -- From back cover.
