This book did not receive three awards for nothing. It is a book for the older grades but great to read. This author did an amazing job.

This book deals with the moral ethics of cloning in a futuristic world where drug lords have taken over the boarder of Mexico and the United States. Overall I found the book to be a bit lacking, given its numerous awards I'd expect better intergration of hispanic culture and a less predictable plot. However it was recommended me by a vary dear friend whose opinion on books I respect so clearly I'm in the minority in my opinion.

Both my kids (ages 11 and 13) read this book in two days, which impressed me, and they LOVED it.
