Far from Gringo Land

High School Fiction

G/A Myers, Edward. Far from Gringo Land. Clarion, 2009. 208 p.

Rick is spending the summer before his senior year of high school in Mexico but he is not on vacation. He is helping a Mexican family build an addition onto their house. In exchange, he gets to practice his Spanish and live as a member of the family. As the work begins, Rick realizes that he is not prepared for the hard work or the hard life that the Romeros deal with every day. Complicating matters is a pretty, rich, American girl that Rick has fallen for.
