I just finished the book Heat. This book was written by Mark Lupica. My book is about a character named Michael Arroyo a gifted baseball player. But there's only one problem the coaches from other teams say that he is too good to be just 12 years old. My option about the book Heat was that it was a suspenseful story. The book was also a learning book where the character learns and should make you learn to never give up no matter what anyone tells you. This book helped me learn not to give up on anything that I love and enjoy like running how you should never give up if you are a runner and to keep pushing yourself to new limits every day. This book is realistic fiction because, a kid never really had a problem that the coaches from other teams telling him, that he was to good to be 12 years old the author made so that it sounds like it could happen to but not to much so that it is nonfiction or too little like a fictional book. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a book that was a learning book where the character learns a very important life lesson. I would also like to recommend this book to people who like baseball, who likes suspense and action. An external conflict was that Michael and his family had a lack of money to pay their bills and was pretending that their died dad was visiting a sick relative. An internal conflict was that Michael's dad who had brought Carlos and him to America had passed away.
