The Heat Hi room 29, the book I will be writing about is called The Heat. In this realistic fiction book The Heat by Mike Lupica, Manny has a hard time controlling his temper. To, back up my opinion, I will state evidence from the story, why Manny has a hard time controlling his temper. Manny told Michael,"Please, pretty please, tell me that punk is going down" (69).
