conover is a serious badass. plain and simple. he heads down to mexico, joins up with a group of pollos who, led by a coyote, sneaks through the desert for two days, crosses the border (gets beat up, tortured, and robbed along the way), spends a season picking fruit with his new amigos and then all of 'em knock around the country looking for work before heading back down to mexico. this is a terrific book. gonna pick up New Jack (conover becomes a guard at Sing Sing!) and White Out (a taxi driver in aspen) next...
