Notes

Description
For Arturo, summertime in Miami means playing basketball until dark, sipping mango smoothies, and keeping cool under banyan trees. And maybe a few shifts as junior lunchtime dishwasher at Abuelas restaurant. Maybe. But this summer also includes Carmen, a cute poetry enthusiast who moves into Arturos apartment complex and turns his stomach into a deep fryer. He almost doesnt notice the smarmy land developer who rolls into town and threatens to change it. Arturo refuses to let his family and community go down without a fight, and as he schemes with Carmen, Arturo discovers the power of poetry and protest through untold family stories and the work of José Martí.
