Publisher's Summary

Ernesto Cisneros, Pura Belpré Award-winning author of Efrén Divided, is back with a hilarious and heartfelt novel about two best friends who must rely on each other in unexpected ways. A great next pick for listeners Isaac and Marco already know sixth grade is going to change their lives. But it won’t change things at home—not without each other’s help. 

This year, star basketball player Isaac plans on finally keeping up with his schoolwork. Better grades will surely stop Isaac’s parents from arguing all the time. Meanwhile, straight-A Marco vows on finally winning his father’s approval by earning a spot on the school’s basketball team. 

But will their friendship and support for each other be enough to keep the two boys from falling short?
