This semi-autobiographical novel follows Mila, short for Milagros, an American girl who moves to Mexico City with her jet-setting U.S. Foreign Service mom. Initially, she hates it, but begins to get a feel for her International school’s cliques, the abundant access to drugs and the wide variety of boys. Full of drama that will appeal to U.S. teens, Mila also has some decidedly atypical experiences for your average teen, such as when her mom’s boyfriend is executed by drug runners, or the occasional private jet that her rich “fresa” friends use for parties.
