Necessary Roughness by Marie G. Lee****

In Necessary Roughness Chan's family owns a store. But then Chan learns that his father has given his brother a bunch of money. His dad's brother asks them to watch his store, and Chan's father abides. His family sells the store and moves to Minnesota. Chan makes suggestions what to leave behind, but all he does is get yelled at. When Chan runs into some idiots at school, he just shakes it off. But then ALL-PRO boy comes up and asks Chan if he wants to join the football team. Chan doesn't know why until ALL-PRO boy tells him their kicker is out for the season. Chan decides to play, leading him to become the rebel of his family, making his father hate him more.

The family in this story is Korean. Chan is expected to be perfectly obedient to everyone. I won't spoil the ending, which is really good. I think this book is amazing. The story line is really good, and it seemed that it could have a sequel. I hope you love this book as much as me.
