      About the Author
      Ann Ball is a businesswoman in Houston who used to be a schoolteacher. She is
      also a Catholic writer who tells the stories of many of the modern saints in
      her books. One of her favorite saints is the "Merry Mexican Martyr," Blessed
      Miguel Pro, S.J. Ann has eight grandchildren, so she wanted to tell Miguel's
      story in a book especially for young people.

      Book Description
      Jose's life is just perfect: a loving mother, a doting big brother, great
      friends and great fun. Best yet, he is just about to receive the ultimate gift:
      Jesus in his First Communion. Yet, Jose's world comes crashing down when he
      witnesses his teacher's martyrdom by Mexican soldiers. Will Jose's life ever be
      the same again? How can a priest, martyred years before, help him to learn to
      love again?
