What happens in Mexico stays in Mexico, unless it forces you to showup late to high-school graduation in a squad car wearing a red Mexicanwedding dress. Just how did Kylie Flores, class valedictorian from the wrong side of the tracks, and Max Langston, the king of FreiburgAcademy's richest and hottest, wind up in bed together in Ensenada,Mexico, on graduation morning? This breezy romp takes readers along forthe ride as the teens piece together the details of their wild night.Kylie's best friend Will, her brother Jake and Max's girlfriend Lilyalso lend their voices to the story. Jake, who suffers from Asperger's,adds a particularly distinctive perspective. And while the number ofteens coming out may push the believability factor, the depiction oftheir relationships with both friends and love interests feels real andpositive. It's no surprise that both Kramer and Thomas share commonroots in the film industry. Their love of the medium comes through notonly in Kylie and Will's passion for quoting movies but also in thefast-paced action sequences that seem made for the big screen. - Kirkus Review
