Overview

Fresh from the country, Juanito is bewildered by his new school. Everything he does feels upside down: he eats lunch when it's recess and goes to play when it's time for lunch, and his tongue feels like a rock when he tries to speak English. But a sensitive teacher and his family help him find his voice through poetry, art and music.
