Summary "Gino Condello is caught between two cultures. By day he goes to the local high school, plays the pinball machines and knocks around with his mates on the streets. At night he returns to his traditional Italian family, and is expected to play host to a family of friends, newly-arrived from Italy. Gino is a fifteen-year-old in turmoil. On the one hand there's Sandy, blonde, adoring, one of the gang. And then there's Maria. Just a kid really, but good looking, and strangely disturbing... Now his family is moving to a new brick palace in the outer suburbs; but Gino wants to stay with his friends, in the inner city, where he's grown up. What will he choose?" -- BOOK JACKET
