Oh, I so wanted to like this. But Fred and Ryan just didn't sell themselves as real characters to me. Both are a little on the passive side, and their relationship is devoid of tangible chemistry. As well, trying to focus on both their troublesome parental issues resulted in neither being fully developed. The side characters ranged from great (Yolanda and the other girls from the rez) to absurd, like Ryan's friend Seth, whose main purpose seems to be to shower hate on Fred with an implausible reason behind his prejudice. And the big problem I have with this is that his racist behaviour is never really dealt with, head-on. After Seth does some serious over-the-top racist stuff, he cries, he's made to seem like a loser, he basically hits rock bottom. But nobody, not even Ryan, addresses his prejudice like "Yo, buddy, racism isn't right." Instead Ryan mutters "Shut up, don't call her Pocahontas" and leaves it at that. To me, that avoids the main source of conflict to the whole book, and more importantly doesn't present the racism as something solvable. We don't need everyone to become all accepting and open-minded, but the theme topic deserves to be dealt with directly.

This book is about an Indian girl named Fredricka and goes by the name Fred. Fred is an amazing golf player and the coach of the High school saw her paying. He asked her to be on the team but the only glitch was that the school didn't have a girls' team so if Fred wanted to play for the school she would had to play on the boys' team. For this to happen someone would have to get kicked off the team.
Now while all of this is happening there is a boy named Ryan was best friends with Seth. Who is the one who will be kicked off the team?
Why does Seth hate Fred?
Ryan feels bad for Fred and he tries to get to know her.
Does Ryan Love Fred?
