What the community says about Heat
- "Aw, Heat! This was such a great book, god it has been years since i've read this, still one of my favorites growing up. Full of twist and turns, I swear you will bond with him as a character' I wasnt even into sports and I swear for a whole week after reading this I was trying to achieve his dreams through me ha, as if I could do something. I used to root for michael so bad, hoping he'd be able to get noticed. And then he did, and more issues came up, this used to have my emotions all over the place. But boy did I love it, I showed my younger sister this book some years back' she was real (into every sport type of) athletic.. ha she was hilarious finishing this book, talking about her pursuing a sport to get into college so she could make a team. Used to have me feeling hopeful for my future, a d i dodnt even play sports ha."
- "This is a pretty solid young-adult book about overcoming loss and adversity. The core centers on the relationship between two brothers , 12 and 17 years old, trying to recover from the deaths of their parents and the challenges imposed on them by society. (The older brother isn’t old enough to have custody of his younger brother yet, and if it’s discovered that there’s no parent in their house, the 12-year-old will be taken by social services!) It falls a little bit into Oliver Twist/deus ex machina ending syndrome, where success is bestoewed from on high rather than accomplished by the character. (Spoilers I guess, but you’re probably buying this for a kid; I got it for my 12-year-old’s reading assignment and he thought it was OK.) The author is pretty popular, and this is definitely one of the best sports-movies-that’s-a-book you can get for your kid. That said I’m ranking it 0 in this category because there’s neither erotica nor aliens. Sorry. "
- "I love cross-over genre, in books and movies. Some of my favorite books and movies have elements, that by themselves would not predispose me to check them out. Not really much of a romance reader, or a sports follower, but add in the sci-fi and the mix is intriguing enough for me to check it out, which I did, on a four hour flight. My seat mate had to poke me in the ribs to get me to stand up and grab my bags. The book didn't make it to my personal faves list, but it was definitely enthralling. If there is the possibility that even one of the threads: sci fi, sports, or romance could be your thing then check it out. "
- "This book is very special, i have had a very good time reading this book. I recommend it to all readers who want to have some good time. From my experience in can say that this book is well written and the story that tells is very interesting. "

in What are the best fiction books"Heat is a book about two brothers, Carlos and Michael, and the challenges they have to conquer in order to succeed. The story is a drama about both friendship and baseball. There are many things I liked and I didn't like in the book. First of all, I enjoyed how the book did not let you know what would happen next. I had no idea if any of the plans to stay together as a family after their dad died would work. When it came to the main characters, I really liked them. I was glad the book was not written from Justin's point of view, who was a mean kid Michael played against. I liked how the storyline was original and bold in that it was did not have a regular fairytale ending."
