ACROSS THE TRACKS

Betty Ochoa's senior year in a California High School promises to bring with it every reward which an attractive and vital young girl could wish. Generally admired for her initiative, courted by one of the school's most distinguished young men, recognized for her artistic ability, it is only the haunting awareness that Betty is of Mexican origin which keeps her from being truly secure. Betty's acceptance of her heritage and her understanding that within this background lies not poverty, but richness, makes up the nucleus of this novel of maturity through self-acceptance. A wholesome and encouraging analysis kept comfortably within the framework of acceptable fiction.
