This book would be in the multi-cultural section in most school libraries. It's a breezy book about a young girl named Lina who is basically just an average girl trying to survive her middle school years. Her mom recently died and her father seems to be more interested in books than in her life (he even brings a book to read during one of her volleyball games). Lina's best friend, Vanessa, has a mom who hates all men and boys since her husband left her. This presents a huge problem for Vanessa as she has her sights set on a guy in her class. In addition, Lina's finds herself falling in love with another young boy named Luis who has a little bit of a stuttering problem. Throughout the story, the author has mixed in spanish words and customs giving the reader a feel for the multi-cultural aspects of growing up Mexican-American. I would recommend this book for students in grades 5-8.
