Sofía has been training hard for a long time for an important competition coming up in a few months: the Special Olympics. Sofía is a weightlifter who spends three days a week (her favorite days!) training to compete in the events of squats, bench presses and deadlifts. She likes it because she’s good at it, but even more so, she loves going to the gym to spend time with all of her friends there.

 

Yet one day, the easy lifting vibe in the gym is upset with the arrival of a new girl, Bleu. Bleu is definitely strong, which is great for fending off the bullies she has to deal with, but along with her brightly colored hair, she’s also sporting an enormous attitude - one that gets in her way of her moving forward on so many levels, and one that is a potential problem for the folks at the gym.

 

Will the weight of the new dynamic at the gym affect Sofía’s progress?

Will Bleu be able to lift herself out of her troubles?

    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.
