Publisher's Summary

Pichu is the best soccer player anyone in the little Mexican town of Los Barriles has ever seen. When a vacationing American soccer coach sees the teenager score a gravity-defying goal in a local game, he offers Pichu a scholarship to pay for the University of San Francisco's underdog team. Pichu leaves his family and the security of his idyllic fishing village and finds himself in a jarringly different environment. At first his skills seem unsuited to the cut-throat competition of a college team. But then a mysterious visitor, who sees him practicing alone at night, helps him develop "the unstoppable shot".

Ponga Boy is both an exciting sports story and a poignant look at America through the eyes of someone from a very different culture. But it's also an inspiring coming-of-age story about a young man who finds out what exists in the very deepest place inside him.
