Summary "Sixteen year old Laritza is never happier than when she is singing. When she and her undocumented father move to a new town, she is thrilled that the choir director at her new school has noticed her talent. She is encouraged to audition for a solo and is also excited to compete in 'Elmerton Idol,' a school-wide singing competition. When racist bullies try to undermine Laritza's success, she loses heart. Can she find happiness in her new school in spite of the obstacles she faces?"--Back cover.
