The Brothers Torres

Product Description: Frankie Towers has always looked up to his older brother, Steve. Although Frankie has some reservations, he doesn't spend much time thinking about about Steve's crusade to win the respect of the local cholos. Then Frankie gets into a fistfight with John Dalton — longtime nemesis of Steve's, and the richest, preppiest kid in their New Mexican high school. After another incident with Dalton, Steve is bent on retaliating. Frankie starts to think that his brother is taking this respect thing too far. Soon he'll have to make a choice between respecting his brother and respecting himself.
