In many ways, best friends Cat, Gabi, Luz, and Magda have nothing in common. Cat is a television personality-turned-Internet sensation, while Gabi is a single mother whose ex cheated on her. Luz has an incarcerated father and a teenage half-sister who might be pregnant, and Magda is a powerhouse lesbian whose father condemns her lifestyle. But even though these fierce Latina women come from different backgrounds and live very different lives (albeit universally luxurious and trendy ones), they each struggle with their relationships. The only relationship safe from turmoil is that of the women's friendship with one another.
VERDICT Rita's follow-up to her first novel (Never Too Real) holds high the value of female friendship, and any reader who likes gal pal stories with plenty of glamorous fashion, style, and scandal thrown in will enjoy this novel.
