Marcos Rivas yearns for love, a working cell phone, and maybe a pair of sneakers that arent falling apart. But more than anything, Marcos wants to get out of Maesta, his hood, away from his indifferent mom and her abusive boyfriendwhich seems impossible. When Marcos is placed in a new after-school program, he meets Zach and Amy, whose friendship inspires Marcos to open up to his Maesta crew, too, and starts to think more about his future and what he has to fight for. Marcos ultimately learns that bravery isnt about acting tough and being macho; its about being true to yourself. The Closest Ive Come is a story about traversing real and imagined boundaries, about discovering new things in the world, and about discovering yourself, too.
