Great YA!

The Brothers Torres by Coert Voorhees

Frankie Torres is a pretty typical high school student who lives in the shadow of his older, very popular, soccer star brother Steve. Frankie has a best friend, Zach, who is a bit of an outcast, obsesses over his crush, Rebecca Sanchez, whom he wants to ask to Homecoming, and spends afternoons and evenings working at Los Torres, his family's restaurant. Frankie is a great kid who gets mixed up in a lot of bad situations. Torn between doing what he thinks is right, what his friends want him to do, and doing what would be loyal to his brother.

I thought this was a terrific multicultural and current YA!
