This book can be read by younger and adult readers alike. It is the sequel to The Circuit. Panchito (Francisco Jimenez as a boy) is growing up and overcoming his obstacles to purse his dreams. The story is told in chapters that are almost complete stories in and of themselves. It is a quick and easy read. I look forward to reading the next book in the trilogy- Reaching Out.

Remarkable inspiring true story of a young boy's journey and how his hard work paid off. The book left off as he was entering college on a scholarship. I'd love to find a sequel.
