“Rico doesn't feel like he fits in too well in New York City. He's a Cuban boy who looks and sounds white, his mother nags him and his father drinks too much. Running away to Wisconsin, Rico finds that he hasn't managed to leave behind all the jerks or all the questions. However, he does find a community of teens, all dealing with issues of race, imperfect families, and how to use their talents to make a future.”
— Julie Leonard, Troubadour Books, Boulder, CO
