Overview
Chan Jung Kim has always been popular. But that was when he lived in L.A. and was the star of his soccer team. Now his family& 146;s moved& 151;to a tiny town in Minnesota, where football& 146;s the name of the game and nobody has ever seen an Asian American family before. Desperate to fit in, Chan throws himself into the game& 151;but he feels like an outsider. For the first time in his life, he finds himself thinking about what it really means to be Korean& 151;and what is really important. By turns gripping, painful, funny, and illuminating, Necessary Roughness introduces a major new talent and a fresh young voice to the Harper list.
