Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—Faith Watters plans to spend her senior year living up to everyone else's expectations. She'll keep the same boyfriend she's had for three years, wear the same conservative clothes, and maintain her social status as the popular queen bee at her high school. However, her facade is challenged while serving as a student ambassador for a Cuban transfer student, Diego Alvarez. Despite being an unlikely couple, Faith and Diego find themselves instantly drawn to each other. Their steamy attraction quickly, almost too conveniently, becomes a hidden relationship. Faith's father, a pastor at a local church, was almost ruined professionally and personally when Faith's mother abandoned them for a drug habit. The protagonist believes a relationship with a scarred, tattooed boy from another culture would not only be frowned upon by her friends, but also be completely unacceptable to her father and their congregation. As their pasts are revealed, the teens are drawn together by all that they have in common. It isn't until their relationship finally goes public that Diego's past threatens their safety. The story is told in the alternating, indistinguishable voices of Faith and Diego. The narrative has more than a few convenient plot elements as well as some potential flaws, including the boy's English skills originating from his summers in the U.S., despite the long-standing travel restrictions between the two countries. Indiscriminate readers might be willing to overlook these inconsistencies, but even die-hard romance fans may still find the teens' relationship overly clichéd.—Lynn Rashid, Marriotts Ridge High School, Marriottsville, MD
