Thirteen year old Hayley goes to Mexico to live with her grandmother temporarily after the breakup of her parent's marriage. She finds that Mexico is very different from what she expected and she is very happy living with her grandmother. She has all sorts of adventures and makes friends with Lili. But as nice as life is in Mexico there are also problems such as Lili's father having to go to the United States to work as a farm laborer. The author really makes life in this Mexican town come alive and I felt that I learned a lot about Mexican culture.
