Overview
"Get hooked on a girl named Fred..."
HE said: Fred Oday is a girl? Puh-leeze. Why is a girl taking my best friend's spot on the boys' varsity golf team?
SHE said: Can I seriously do this? Can I join the boys' team? Everyone will hate me--especially Ryan Berenger.
HE said: Coach expects me to partner with Fred on the green? That is crazy bad. Fred's got to go--especially now that I can't get her out of my head. So not happening.
SHE said: Ryan can be nice, when he's not being a jerk. Like the time he carried my golf bag. But the girl from the rez and the spoiled rich boy from the suburbs? So not happening.
"But there's no denying that things are happening as the girl with the killer swing takes on the boy with the killer smile..."

Sixteen-year-old Fredricka “Fred” Oday, who lives with her impoverished family on the Gila River Indian Reservation, plays on the town’s fancy golf course during off hours when it’s free. Her talent impresses her high school coach, so he gives her the top spot on the all-boy team. She encounters raw, realistic racism from the student golfers, especially the one whose spot on the team she took. Meanwhile, handsome rich boy Ryan becomes Fred’s tournament partner, and half the book comes from his unsteady perspective. He’s torn between his romantic feelings for Fred and his allegiance to his popular but often cruel friends. Fred is strong and resilient, and it’s easy to root for her as she succeeds in golf and bonds with her “Rez” friends, including a cute boy named Sam; her story, laced with information about Native American culture and traditions, sheds important light on the many struggles Native teens face. Making her YA debut, Fichera shows strong storytelling chops as she weaves together plot lines involving class struggles, violence, bullying, and—of course—romance. Ages 14–up. Agent: Holly Root, Waxman Leavell Literary Agency. (Feb.)
