Bruce's Story by Kate William, 212 pages
The license plates on Bruce Patman's Porsche read 1BRUCE1, and that's exactly how he thinks of himself-as Number One. Handsome and arrogant, Bruce is used to getting everything he wants. Bruce's cousin Roger, who lives with the Patman family is nothing like Bruce. Roger was penniless for most of his life. He only recently found out that his late father was a Patman and that he was heir to his father's estate. Roger is still trying to adjust to his newfound wealth. The boys have only one thing in common-their grandfather, who is one of the richest men in California. A shrewd, hardworking businessman, Mr. Patman decides to set up a contest between Bruce and Roger. The winner will inherit the grandfather's entire estate. The war is on-and Bruce will do anything to win!
