Marcos Baez had many loves.
First was his mother.
Next came baseball.
Reggaeton and bachata.
A girl stole his heart.
Then he realized a love greater still.
"Through the story of Marcos Baez and Fenway High, Steve Marantz shows the humanity and prospects of Latino students in our nation's public schools. Next Up at Fenway gives us a window into how social forces and education policy decisions are playing out in real people's lives - for better and worse - within America's fastest growing demographic. This book is both Americana and a reality check for the 21st century."
-Sonia Chang-Diaz, Massachusetts state senator and former teacher
