Publisher's Summary

Rosa is an illegal immigrant from Mexico City who sells herself on the streets of Houston while dreaming of a career in modeling. Traci is a blonde beauty obsessed with becoming head cheerleader and securing her future for a good marriage. On the surface, no two 14-year-olds could appear more different. Three-time Newbery Honor-winner Gary Paulsen brings his immense talents to this rich story of a chance encounter between two young women, each seeing her life mirrored in the eyes of another. Their story, told in both English and Spanish, exposes similarities in two women trapped by a world that puts a high price on youth and beauty.

Ambas tienen 14 años y aparentemente no pueden ser más diferentes. Gary Paulsen, tres veces distingui-do con el Premio Newbery, aporta su gran talento a esta historia de dos muchachas cuyas vidas se cruzan solo por un momento, dejando en ambas una profunda impresion . Su diario vivir, narrado en español e inglés, presenta el parecido entre dos chicas destinadas a pagar un alto preciopor su belleza y juventud.
