This is a must-read book for tearing down the walls of stereotyping, and battling discrimination based on skin color and poverty. Diversity is a reality in our current world. A very poor kid from Dimmitt, Texas (Carlos) is surprised by his large family packing up one day and moving to Oregon. He meets a very wealthy boy from Gervais, Oregon (Harv) in the berry field. Carlos is a very gifted quarterback, but when it comes to grades, well, let's not talk about that. Harv is not a great athlete, but he's very smart. Harv has a very bright sister (Liz) who takes a liking to Carlos. The only problem is... her dad (Ted) does not want his kids around Hispanics - find out why. Carlos and Harv square a deal to help each other become successful behind their parent's back - find out how. Can the two cultures come together? Can Carlos and Harv help the Gervais Cougars make it to state? One of the friends gets kidnapped, who is it? How do we measure wealth - is it really always about money? This fiction story has true places. It is also full of sports, humor, first love, and mystery.
