Summary
Ramon Ernesto Ramirez, known as Monchi, lives on a ranch in the southewestern United States. Life, like the bumpy road to school, isn't perfect. Still, he enjoys writing for the school newspaper, celebrating Nochebuena, and helping with the roundup. Monchi is asked to help brand the cattle, so he has to decide whether to win the Perfect Attendance Award or to follow in the tradition of the vaqueros.
