What does it mean when you have a crush on your wrestling opponent after you just kicked his butt? Can you fall in love with a teammate? Paco's teammate Chad missed school, everyone in the baseball bleachers knows, for a sexual abuse trial. Most parents frown upon him because he acts out, but Paco's parents accept the friend their son brings home. Their friendship has evolved with the ferocity of a wolf pack by the time Paco's great-grandfather tells him he's a two-spirit. Will his parents accept their son for who he is? Do they know? Looking at sexual abuse, alcoholism, recovery, and the prejudice in cultural expectations, this book is the first in the series narrated by Paco and his pack.
