Frankie Towers has always looked up to his older brother, Steve. And with good reason-Steve is a popular senior gets whatever he wants: girls, a soccer scholarship, and-lately-street cred. Frankie, on the other hand, spends his time shooting off fireworks with his best friend, Zach, working at his parents' restaurant, and obsessing about his longtime crush, Rebecca Sanchez.
Although Frankie has some reservations, he doesn't spend much time thinking about about Steve's crusade to win the respect of the local "cholos." Then Frankie gets into a fistfight with John Dalton-longtime nemesis of Steve's, and the richest, preppiest kid in their New Mexican high school. After the fight, Steve takes Frankie under his wing, and Frankie's social currency begins to rise. The "cholos "who used to ignore him start to recognize him; he even lands a date to Homecoming with Rebecca.
But after another incident with Dalton, Steve is bent on retaliating. Frankie starts to think that his brother is taking this respect thing too far. Soon he'll have to make a choice between respecting his brother and respecting himself.
In an honest and humorous debut novel, Coert Voorhees examines what it means for a young man to come of age. A compelling look at where loyalty ends and the self begins.
