Product Description
"Stop it. The two of you, stop it!" Roelito screams at his father and older brother as their argument becomes a shoving match. Beto, a senior in high school, has come home past curfew, smelling like a cantina. When Beto Sr. tells his son that he either needs to follow the rules or leave, he decides to leave, right then, in the middle of the night. But once he's walked away, he realizes he has nowhere to go. Maybe his best friend Jessy can help. The story of Beto's decision to run away and drop out of school is told from shifting perspectives in which the lives of Roel, Beto, and Jessy are told in short scenes that reflect teen-age life. Author and educator Rene Saldana, Jr. once again writes a fast-paced, thought-provoking novel that will engage young adults in questions about their own lives and responsibilities to family, friends, and most of all, to themselves.
