High School Diversity - The Clash (second in the high school series)
by Paul Swearingen
Carla can’t seem to come to grips with her life and seems always to be running away from it and in conflict with persons who always tell her what to do. She’s threatened after a minor misunderstanding; she finds herself in a fast car with a drug runner; she saves her romantic rival’s life with a crusty steak knife. In the end she proves that short Hispanic girls can have fun, too.
