Five very different students misidentified as “Mexicanos” find commonality in a superb audio adaptation of this graphic novel. While the full cast and production are all outstanding, the narrators portraying the diverse students give especially animated performances, conveying unique personalities and moving flawlessly between English and Spanish. Andrés Hinspeter-Seda is the unassuming Puerto Rican, George; Sarah Tie portrays the lone Mexican, Sara; Christian Barillas is the rich Venezuelan, Nico; Noah Rico plays the Dominicano, Miguel; and Lisset Díaz plays the tough Cuban, Dayara. All of them find a common purpose in helping a homeless woman and her daughter. This is an immersive language experience for middle schoolers. The production may ring a bell for fans of the 1985 movie THE BREAKFAST CLUB, which inspired this story. M.F. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2023]
