One day Sebastiano is a soccer phenom, dancing his way around the ball up and down the pitch.

 

The next day he isn’t.

 

As if coming to terms with needing to use a wheelchair isn’t enough at 14 years old, Sebastiano also has to face more changes, and all at once. Switching schools because of the family’s move to a new neighborhood, and changes in the relationship with his father due to the sudden absence of soccer in their lives, causes way too much stress.  This new reality is NOT a good time for Sebastiano.

 

Antonio is struggling in his relationship with his dad, too, mostly because he thinks his father wants him to be something he’s not - or at least Antonio doesn’t think he is. Instead of practicing his guitar and trying to be as good as a musician as his father, Antonio just wants to be left alone to play video games with his friends.

 

The two boys meet at Sebastiano’s new school, and, after a bit of a rocky start, the boys develop a friendship. Later, with the help of a professional hockey player, who is facing his own challenges, both Sebastiano and Antonio begin to realize that what they think is reality is not the same as what really is.

    makes me want to be dead

    we are reading this in spanish class, fucking awful. Listening to my spanish (very white) teacher read this makes me want to dig my pencils all the way up my eardrums until I cant hear a thing. When I have to answer questions about these stupid little kids and their soccer obsession that DETErmINE MY GRaDE, I think about dropping out. to all the Spanish teachers out there, making your students read this book should be considered child abuse DO NOT recommend.

    I recommend this product.

    La Mochila

    Love this book for my novice learners. The story is compelling - the reader HAS to keep reading because we want to know how the problem is resolved! In addition to engaging topic/action the underlying struggle that a character has in deciding what to do is great for teens to experience. I also love that it features realistic characters that are portrayed with their humanity.

    I recommend this product.

    Easy to understand

    This story was easy to read without being too repetitive. It is written with the novice student in mind. I love that it ties in another Francophone country for us to explore as well as "le foot"!

    I recommend this product.

    Love El Jersey!

    I use El Jersey to enhance our 8th grade "Living on One" thematic unit after students complete a unit on Copa America. The cultural ties to Guatemala and to the Copa are endless. My students really relate to the characters.

    I recommend this product.

    Great addition to your FVR library

    My level 2 Spanish students enjoy this book in Spanish because it is written with vocab and structure they can understand. They also enjoy how the two worlds come together. These situations can happen to any of us. When students read this book, they are not only learning Spanish, they are learning good character.

    I recommend this product.

    Cute, Simple Rom-Com

    I LOVE that this book features a black female main character. #BlackLivesMatter This is a cute, simple romantic book, written in easily accessible language for your struggling readers. The plot is predictable and uncomplicated, which is what we want from our Rom-Com books and movies, right? This book is constantly being read by my students during FVR. Love it!!

    Fun, quick read :)

    I finally got around to reading this one recently, and it was super fun to read - but it left me wanting more. It has a pretty predictable story line, but the characters are so likable, that you enjoy going on the roller coaster of emotions with them. I LOVE that it features LGBTQ characters. This book is on HIGH circulation in my classroom during FVR!

    I recommend this product.
