Publisher's Summary

There's a lot Ariana isn't allowed to do...
Ariana has never had a boyfriend. After meeting Carlos at a quinceanera party, she wants one. But her parents, who grew up with the traditional ways of Mexico, simply won't allow it.
And she just decided she doesn't need permission anymore...
Ariana is ready for the freedom that comes with having a driver's license. But she must convince her brother, Jimmy, to not say anything when she starts seeing Carlos behind their parents' back, and even then, having a boyfriend isn't what she thought it would be. Because Carlos is still hurting from his past.
Is she ready for the consequences of her decision?
Ariana never would have guessed finally having a boyfriend would come at such a huge price. She doesn't know how long she can keep up the lie to her parents. And she never realized how much her heart might have to pay if this relationship isn't something Carlos is ready for. When Carlos starts showing her just how damaged he is, Ariana isn't sure she's ready for this either.

Awesome Prequel

Ariana has never been allowed to have a boyfriend but she is turning 17 and thinks she knows more than her parents, especially since meeting Carlos at a party and he has shown a interest in her. She doesn't even care what her brother Jimmy thinks, when he tries to tell her Carlos isn't the guy for her, and he would do anything for her. So who will be right, will love triumph or those that know her best.

This was a great book it really does capture teen rebellion and sneakiness very well along with the. "I know what I am doing" attitude and mindset. Although I think Ariana's parents were a bit strict for todays standards, I suppose there are still a few parents like that. I had the audio narrated by Ramona Master who did a awesome job, and with the audio you can really hear the snarkiness in Ariana's voice, and the cool and calmness in Jimmy's voice. This is a great series but one I really enjoy as a audio, since Ms. Master is so good at this cast.
