Review: Trevor's upbeat personality, talent for soccer, and artistic abilities help to ease him into his new school when he moves to a housing project with his mom and younger siblings. However, fitting in with wealthy classmates is hard work, particularly when there is absolutely no money for things like soccer. Its worse when his classmates are jealous of his abilities and try to sabotage things! An eccentric gifted teacher encourages Trevor to "bloom where he's planted" as his mom teaches him to "rise above it." Clever word play, realistic characters, gritty realism, and a snappy plot make this a winner.
