Suddenly everybody in Max's life seems to be fighting: a couple of cranky t as who, like lucha libre rudos, will stop at nothing to triumph in the church's loter a game; his masked uncles going for the tag-team title of the world; and a green-eyed vixen named Paloma who challenges his love for Cecilia. Will good triumph over evil? Max sure hopes so

De repente, parece que todos alrededor de Max se est n peleando: un par de t as malhumoradas que, como los rudos de la lucha libre, no se detendr n ante nada para triunfar en el juego de la loter a de la iglesia; sus t os enmascarados que van por el t tulo mundial en parejas; y una muchacha bonita de ojos verdes llamada Paloma que desaf a su amor por Cecilia. Triunfar el bien sobre el mal? Max's que lo espera

Praise For…

"Short chapters and the bilingual format (English text is on the left with Spanish translation on facing pages) make this book a quick read, great for reluctant readers... Readers who enjoyed the first title will be pleased to continue reading about Max and his family." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Max's transition into sixth grade drives this adventure and coming-of-age novel's narrative arc, framing a plot that focuses on relationships that a range of readers will connect with: family, friends, and first love, among others. Garza employs plenty of humor and a first-person voice that rings true to Maximilian's character... With its bilingual text and universally relatable treatment of Latino culture, it's an outstanding choice." -- School Library Journal
