Seventh-grader Trino Olivares likes video games a lot more than he likes books. In fact, he doesn't have much use for most "school types". But when Rosca, an older teen with a vicious streak, invites Trino to start hanging out with his crowd -- and maybe make some quick money, too -- the younger boy doesn't know what to think. With little help from any adults, it's up to Trino to decide which choices will impress his friends -- and which choices are the best for Trino. A dramatic story about the difficult problems that children today face -- often with little guidance -- and the sometimes deadly consequences that can result.
With the help of some friends and a Tejano hero that he discovers in history class, thirteen-years old Trino copes with his problems and his world.
