Summary
"What's the problem? Sixteen-year-old Filipino American Angelo Rivera will tell you flat out. Life sucks. He's been uprooted from his San Diego home to a boring landlocked town in the middle of nowhere. Behind him, ocean waves, his girlfriend, and the biggest skateboarding competition on the California coast. Ahead, flipping burgers at his parents' new diner and, as the only Asian in his all-white school, being trolled as "brown boy" by small-minded, thick-necked jocks. Resigned to being an outcast, Angelo isn't alone. Kirsten, a crushable ex-cheerleader and graffiti artist, and Larry, a self-proclaimed invisible band geek, recognize a fellow outsider. Soon enough, Angelo finds himself the leader of their group of misfits. They may be low on the high school food chain, but they're determined to hold their own. Between shifts at the diner, dodging bullies, and wishing for home, Angelo discovers this might not be nowhere after all. Sharing it can turn it into somewhere in a heartbeat."--Amazon
