Summary

Truman L. Cobbler has not had an easy life. It's bad enough people say he looks like Donkey from Shrek. He also suffered the death of his policeman father and his mother's remarriage to a professional swindler, who cost them everything. Now dirt poor, they live in the barrio of San Antonio, Texas.

When Tru transfers to an inner-city high school halfway through his senior year, he meets Javi Castillo, a popular and hot high school jock. Javi takes an immediate liking to Tru, and the two become friends. The odd pairing, however, rocks the school and sets the cliquish social circles askew. No one knows how to act or what to think when Mr. Popular takes a stand for Mr. Donkey. Will the cliques rise up to maintain status quo and lead Tru and Javi to heartbreak and disaster or will being true to who they are rule the day?

An engaging story

I found the voice a little irritating at times, however I found the story kept my attention and focused. A story of the new new nerdy kid and the jock.

Very good

Enjoyed this one. One of the better takes on an old theme .. Why does amazon insist on 20 words? Sometimes just a few words work better no wonder no one leaves feedback. Get your act together amazon

When we find True Love

A very well written story, but it does not do enough to pull at the heart strings, it does illstrate the problems of gay relationships and peer pressure at school. I for one enjoyed the story, and would reccomend this to other readers. Please ask the writer to do a follow on story, it would be nice to find out if the pair made it and find their happily ever after.
