We follow Yehudi Mercado as he struggles with his lack of athletic ability, his health issues, and his parents, but regardless of the outcomes always seems to be okay with the results. Hudi might not have been great at baseball, soccer, swimming, or football, but he did not lose. He just has a perfect record of not winning. Hudi and his BFF Chunky (an invisible mascot) take on bullies, family, and comedy. Chunky is based on Mecado’s own life as a middle class Mexican Jewish kid with a funny name. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
