Sofi Mendoza's life was made when she and her best friends were invited to the hottest party of the year.

Just when Sofi thought everything was perfect, her overprotective parents say she can't go. But that doesn't stop her -- after she tells her parents a lie, she heads straight to the party.

After the party, Sofi and a group of her friends decide to make a quick trip to Tijuana and make it back before morning, but little do they know that everyone will return, except for Sofi!

The only thing stopping her is the green card she has. Well, the counterfeit one. While her parents do the necessary paperwork, Sofi ends up staying with her aunt and cousins. Spending her time working on their ranch, living in their house with no electricity, Sofi finds a new love. By the time she falls head over heels, her paperwork gets completed and Sofi is on her way home.

But will the romance continue? Will she learn what life is really all about, and will she finally understand why her parents care so much?

This story is a fascinating page turner. HOWEVER, it is far too racey for most parents to approve. It's really too bad, because I wanted my students to read it, but simply wouldn't be able to because of the inappropriate references. The really sad part is that the inappropriate references are not necessary to the story line.
