Theme and setting
The story took place in Brooklyn sometimes Mike was at the baseball fields or at his brothers apartment .Mike spent a lot of time with his friends at the field and doing other stuff to. The theme of the story was that Mike had to stay on the low side of society. He could not get caught because him and his brother were under age. They were living alone in an apartment but that was not easy for them. Mike had to be a star pitcher for his baseball team in the Little League so his coaches were asking for his birth certificate which is back in Cuba with his family that he has no contact with. That was a problem but it all worked out in the end. Heat was a good book it did a good job intertwining all of the different characters into the same plot.
