JoyrideBook - 1999
What begins as a lark, a joyride in Jeff's Bronco through a farmer's bean field, ends in a most unexpected summer. Giving up tennis, Jeff is thrust into helping with the harvest to pay off his debt. The strawberry fields are only a few miles away from the tennis courts, but worlds apart. The language of the Mexican workers, their culture, even their handshakes are different, not to mention the back-breaking work. When vandals repeatedly sabotage the farm's property, Jeff is challenged to find his true allegiance in this highly readable novel told with sensitivity from a unique vantage point.
