"Through Max's struggle to handle his hero's news, Garza reflects on the often-outsize expectations we heap onto our heroes and the personal sacrifices they make to become athletes and entertainers. The steadily paced narrative, accented by offbeat characters and moments of sincerity and growth, resembles a tender family sitcom. " -- Booklist



"Another entertainingly pulpy, action-packed Lucha Libre--themed tale... Juicy subplots worthy of the best telenovelas are related with Tex-Mex linguistic flare, keeping the pace fast and the twists fresh." -- The Horn Book



"Garza shows a new mastery of his characters--all Mexican--and fictional world in this latest installment. Apart from Max's continued growth, each character shines, no matter how small an appearance they may make. In the end, what readers get is an assured, joyous story full of lucha libre antics and poignant familial bonding.



Max's finest adventure thus far." -- Kirkus Reviews
