Discrimination: Gender Identity,Discrimination: Racial Insensitivity/Racism

Carlos Gomez knows all about not fitting in. As a member of the only Mexican American family in town, he’s used to being the odd one out. A lisp, a penchant for girl glamor, and being picked on by the class bully don’t help, either. But now there’s a talent show coming up, and Carlos is performing with the BMX Stunt Team. He’s ready to wow the crowd with his special, freestyling flair. What could possibly go wrong?

Full-color illustrations.
