I'll be honest, when I started this book I thought it was going to be another one of those "boy from wrong side of the tracks hooks up with rich white girl" but I was pleasantly surprised at the depth Elkenes brings to the table. I could not put the book done and was devastated when I finished it (thankfully there are two more books in the series!). Elekenes dives into issues such as the Mexican gang culture, finding yourself on your own (bucking off the stereotypes and pressures of others) and overcoming boundaries and stereotypes with the help and strength of others. Elkenes strongly develops the main characters, Brittany and Alex, and shows that no matter what race and background issues are in the way, two extremely similar people can still find each other.
