Chavi is determined to play the drums on the school float during Miami's Calle Ocho parade, but everyone—from her music teacher to her own loving mother—is convinced that because she is a girl, she cannot possibly be good enough. Chavi knows differently, and she practices on anything she can get her hands on: pans, paint cans, car hoods. She just knows she's good, and before the book is over, so does everyone else.
