A runaway boy with nothing finds everything he needs, including a family, in the most unlikely of places--at a racetrack.
From the Publisher:
After his mother is killed in a hit-and-run by a Mexican immigrant and his dad starts to hit him, Gas runs away and works at a racetrack stable with a family of Mexicans--the kind of people his father had taught him to hate--in a story about the true meaning of family where Gas is promised glory as a jockey.Five months after losing his mother, seventeen-year-old Gas runs away from an abusive father and gets a job working at an Arkansas race track, surrounded by the illegal Mexican immigrants that he and his father blame for her death.
