Something in Between

Melissa de la Cruz. Harlequin Teen, $18.99 (448p) ISBN 978-0-373-21238-5
The future is bright for high school senior and all-American girl Jasmine de los Santos: the daughter of Filipino immigrants, she has spent her high school years focused on being a well-rounded and academically successful student, as well as a model Filipino daughter. When Jasmine receives the National Scholar Award, a highly competitive scholarship that covers college tuition, her dream of attending Stanford is within reach. To her surprise, her parents don’t share her excitement and reveal a long-kept secret: the de los Santos family is in the United States illegally. After her family’s status is discovered and they face deportation, Jasmine’s perception of herself is thrown into question. De la Cruz (the Blue Bloods series) presents a timely and thought- provoking look at the complex reality of being young and undocumented in the United States; Jasmine is painfully aware of the anti-immigrant forces she’s up against, especially after she starts a relationship with the son of a congressman working against an immigration reform bill. Readers will root for Jasmine as she fights for her future and finds the power of her own voice. Ages 14–up. Agent: Richard Abate, 3 Arts Entertainment. (Oct.)
