Sparrow Hawk RedWhen Ricky discovers that his mother was not killed in an accident, but was murdered by drug lords, he wants his dad to seek revenge. But his father, a former drug-enforcement agent, refuses. So Ricky travels to Mexico to take matters into his own hands.

I liked this book for the way in which it portrayed “rateros” (kids living on the streets). In the book, these children were seen as hard-working and resourceful. One even befriended and helped Ricky. It’s good to see these kids in a positive way. The whole premise of the book seemed a bit far-fetched to me, but I can see how upper elementary kids would really like it.
