A girl struggling for her family to understand and respect her environmentalist ways, her desire for a pollinator garden, even though her dad works for one of those companies that makes terrible pesticides. Balanced by the story of kids growing up in the Dominican Republic, dreaming of a future playing professional baseball. It's about kids growing up with unfairness and working within those confines to make something fair. It gives kids the credit they deserve for being people, with thoughts and brains and desires.
