Children Ages 12+ • 2.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1987

Manny Bustos is an orphan scrounging for food and money in the streets of Juarez, Mexico. Hammer's flat speech reflects Manny's thick-skinned response to life in the streets. As if there were nothing out of the ordinary, the narrator recounts the horrors of Manny's everyday life--the filth, physical abuse and nagging hunger. To escape this impoverished existence, Manny dreams of one day crossing the American border to make his fortune. Hammer's riveting performance will open YA listeners' eyes to the plight of children in Third World countries. M.P.T. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 94]
