Maritza, a 17 year-old who just finished junior year of high school, has the summer all planned out until her mother leaves. She is forced to go into foster care where her past is revealed and she is faced with decisions she never thought she would have to make. Maritza is a very relatable character because she is always questioning what would be best for everyone in her life. She also feels like there is not one specific group she belongs to, and that creates some conflict with herself. I wasn’t disappointed with book at all; the ending wasn’t what I expected, but it was really good!
