She sees something in Eddie he doesn't even see in himself. A heart, and a mind, and something more: a poet. But in Eddie's world, it's a thin line between tragedy and glory. And what goes down is entirely in Eddie's hands. Gripping, thought-provoking, and hopeful,Muchachois a rare and inspiring story about one teen's determination to fight his circumstances and shape his own destiny. From the Hardcover edition.
