Acclaimed author Margaret Peterson Haddix has penned an introspective YA contemporary novel using her signature plot twists and reveals in a story of broken things – broken dreams, friendships, families and hearts too. This authentic and believable novel is told from the alternating perspectives of Avery, an entitled, moody, popular girl, and from Kayla, a lackluster, bullied, lonely teen, who travel to Spain for a summer trip that begins an unexpected journey of self-improvement. There are bridges to the past, secrets to be unraveled, and hope for the future as the author raises thought-provoking questions about surrogacy and what constitutes family. Short chapters and their headers set the tone of each girl’s experience as they work through serious emotional issues, facing many challenges and opportunities. The infusion of Spanish culture, the open-ended conclusion, humorous events, and characters who are easy to connect to will make this an entertaining read for mature middle and high school readers.
