Publisher's Summary

Fans of Jane the Virgin will find much to love about The Go-Between, a coming-of-age novel from best-selling author Veronica Chambers, who, with humor and humanity, explores issues of identity and belonging in a world that is ever changing.
She is the envy of every teenage girl in Mexico City. Her mother is a glamorous telenovela actress. Her father is the go-to voice-over talent for blockbuster films. Hers is a world of private planes, chauffeurs, paparazzi, and gossip columnists. Meet Camilla del Valle - Cammi to those who know her best.
When Cammi's mom gets cast in an American television show and the family moves to LA, things change, and quickly. Her mom's first role is playing a not-so-glamorous maid in a sitcom. Her dad tries to find work but dreams about returning to Mexico. And at the posh, private Polestar Academy, Cammi's new friends assume she's a scholarship kid, the daughter of a domestic.
At first Cammi thinks playing along with the stereotypes will be her way of teaching her new friends a lesson. But the more she lies, the more she wonders: Is she only fooling herself?

What the Critics Say

"Karla Souza (who plays Laurel on 'How to Get Away with Murder') creates a pitch-perfect, youthful narration of Cammi, an ultra-privileged teen whose life is transformed.... Souza, who herself has starred in Mexican telenovelas, seamlessly moves from English to Spanish phrases and beautifully creates a wealth of engaging, clearly delineated characters for Cammi to interact with. This fun yet serious story will entertain a wide array of listeners - while making them think twice about the power of assumptions." (AudioFile)
