Like Father, Like Son

In Like Father, Like Son? everything changes for Tomás, a 16-year-old Peruvian-American, when his young uncle Claudio arrives in the U.S. pursued by a figure from the family’s past. Claudio brings with him a secret that aggravates the tension between Tomás and his father, lays bare his mother’s hidden past, and forces Tomás to re-imagine his own identity. Told in five voices, the fast-paced story reaches a danger-filled climax. Relatable to teens and adults but written on a third to fourth grade reading level, this complete short novel is intended for use in an English as a Second Language or an Adult Basic Education classroom. Free, downloadable supplementary materials, such as vocabulary lists, comprehension questions, and discussion questions, are available online.  The author taught adult ESL in a U.S. community college for eight years and EFL to teens through adults in an English language school in Peru.
