Mexican WhiteBoy is a 2008 novel by Matt de la Peña. De la Peña drew on his own adolescent passion for sports in developing his main character Danny, a baseball enthusiast. The novel, which is set in San Diego, uses Spanglish and has a bicultural theme. Danny Lopez, the protagonist, is a outgoing young teenager from San Diego who attends Leucadia Prep. It has a majority of white children and he feels different from them even though he has only a slightly darker skin tone.
While Danny's self-inflicted wounds are physical manifestations of his identity crisis, de la Peña depends too heavily on the absent-parent motif for emotional justification. Danny's internal voice occasionally grates, but the earnest emotions portrayed in his imagined letters to his father easily correct for this. Danny’s sophomoric plan to find his missing dad reflects a balance between idealism and stupidity, especially since astute readers will quickly deduce the whereabouts of his father. While Danny’s self-inflicted wounds are physical manifestations of his identity crisis, de la Peña depends too heavily on the absent-parent motif for emotional justification.
