Seventeen Fiction from Harlequin Teen,
Pub. Date:
The thought-provoking and timely new novel from Melissa de la Cruz, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Alex & Eliza: A Love Story , will have you crying with Jasmine as she finds out she's undocumented - then cheering her on as she fights to stay in the country she loves. She had her whole life planned. She knew who she was and where she was going. Until the truth changed everything. Jasmine de los Santos has always done what's expected of her. She's studied hard, made her Filipino immigrant parents proud and is ready to reap the rewards in the form of a full college scholarship to the school of her dreams. And then everything shatters. Her parents are forced to reveal the truth: their visas expired years ago. Her entire family is illegal. That means no scholarships, maybe no college at all and the very real threat of deportation. As she's trying to make sense of this new reality, her world is turned upside down again by Royce Blakely. He's funny, caring and spontaneous--basically everything she's been looking for at the worst possible time--and now he's something else she may lose. Jasmine will stop at nothing to protect her relationships, family and future, all while fighting the hard truths of being undocumented. ***** "A great read!" --Rachel Cohn, New York Times bestselling coauthor of Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist "We're obsessed--and you will be too." --The Editors of Seventeen magazine "Heartbreaking and bursting with hope, this is the book we all need." --Marie Lu, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Young Elites and Legend series "This book will change you. A must-read." --Dhonielle Clayton, coauthor of Tiny Pretty Things and Shiny Broken Pieces , and the forthcoming The Belles "A must-read!" --Ally Condie, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Matched trilogy "An immigrant herself, de la Cruz succeeds in presenting a complicated and multifaceted topic in a manner that is light enough to keep readers engaged." -- Kirkus Reviews "De la Cruz presents a timely and thought-provoking look at the complex reality of being young and undocumented in the United States...Readers will root for Jasmine as she fights for her future and finds the power of her own voice." -- Publishers Weekly
