The hero is Paco Jones, a biracial Mexican kid with few friends. He's recently transferred from his old junior high to a private school, and because he's the poor new kid, he soon finds himself the least popular. He's jeered at during lunch, called Paco Taco, and ridiculed for being different. So what hope is there for him when he falls for Naomi Fox, a popular girl already involved with a popular guy? Through dumb luck and a few clever moves, Paco soon finds himself on center stage amidst a twisted middle school mess.

This is great coming of age novel with some humor, romance, and junior high action, with an underlying them of racism and identity that hints at the recent emergence of racial discrimination in America. Targeted at teens, but relevant and amusing for adults as well.
