So good, and so cute. You don't see much of a Mexican female lead in YA, but this book pulled it off. It discussed some very true topics like poverty, immigration and racism. Mix it in with a good amount of romance, and you got your next summer read.

Melanie I loved this book! Also, it's really good that it opens to discussions about immigration and other themes that are not often touched in YA literature.

Hari ~Brekker-Maresh~ Exactly!! It was different. I loved it too :)

Hari ~Brekker-Maresh~ YESSS! It's not everyday you come across a book like that.
