Maya loves her mother, but she’s also embarrassed by her. Maya’s mother emigrated from Guatemala years before Maya was born. Still, she clings tightly to her roots and traditions. When lacrosse star Josh Williams suddenly expresses interest in Maya, she’s excited to go on a real date. But Maya’s mother isn’t on board. Can Maya make her mother see she’s ready to grow up and have more freedom? And can she do it before Josh loses interest and moves on to someone who isn’t held down by their Guatemalan heritage?

NetGalley -- This is a beautiful coming-of-age story that many teens will be able to resonate with. I love the Latino representation and Maya's strict household is one that I can relate to. The book explores themes of family, friendship, belonging, identity, and adolescence. Overall, it's a quick and enjoyable read, though I would have preferred more conflict. -- NetGalley -- Una historia en verso que nos cuenta la vida de Maya y su mamá que vino de inmigrante a Estados Unidos desde Guatemala. Todo está cambiando en la vida de Maya y su mamá no quiere dejarla ir y la protege mucho. Me gustó mucho la historia y se me apachurró el corazón por lo que estaba pasando Maya. -- NetGalley -- Overall, it was a fantastic experience. Teens, I'm sure, would be able to relate to Maya's emotions and feelings better.
