Lupe Wong No Baila : (Lupe Wong Won't Dance Spanish Edition)

paperback

 ¡Ganadora del Pura Belpré Honor!

Como una marmota asustada, los shorts de gimnasia se meten en mi trasero.

¿No te gustaría leer un libro que comenzara así?

Lupe Wong quiere ser la primera mujer lanzadora en las Grandes Ligas. Durante toda su infancia, ha defendido diversas causas. Algunas, dignas . . . como la expansión de las opciones de raza en los exámenes escolares. Otras, menos dignas . . . como quejarse al canal BBC sobre la duración entre temporadas de Doctor Who.

Lupe necesita una A en todas las clases para conocer a su lanzador favorito, Fu Li Hernández, un mexi-chino como ella. ¿Qué pasa cuando el baile de country llega al gimnasio? Lupe no se quedará con los brazos cruzados.

No es para nada habitual que el debut de un libro presente a un personaje tan memorable, y con tanto humor e inteligencia emocional, come Lupe. Hasta los fanáticos del baile de country estarán de acuerdo . . .

 

English Description

Lupe Wong is going to be the first female pitcher in the Major Leagues.

She's also championed causes her whole young life. Some worthy.like expanding the options for race on school tests beyond just a few bubbles. And some not so much.like complaining to the BBC about the length between Doctor Who seasons.

Lupe needs an A in all her classes in order to meet her favorite pitcher, Fu Li Hernandez, who's Chinacan/Mexinese just like her. So when the horror that is square dancing rears its head in gym? Obviously she's not gonna let that slide.
