jake maddox squad struggles

Tam is on the cheerleading squad finally. Tam works hard and she has plenty of talent. She loves jumping and doing flips and dancing. But Tam's family is different than most of the other squad members' families. Her mom doesn't speak English and she has five little brothers. There's no way they can afford the cheerleading sneakers and hair ribbons the rest of the squad has. Several girls on the squad do little things that make it clear that Tam isn't welcome. Will Tam be able to stand up for herself? And if she does, will anything actually change?---from the publisher
