The story was about a girl named Fabi who did not want to have a quinceanera instead she wanted to go to New York with her best friend. However, she was forced to cancel her plans when her sister forced her on a bet against Melodee on who can throw the biggest quinceanera in the Valley. The loser has to shave her head and be a slave to the winner for a week. Next thing she knew, her sister and her grandmother signed her up in a reality TV show called Quince Dreams. From there, everything goes downhill when she found out exactly how she got on the show.
I guess I can relate to Fabi. When I was fifteen, I didn’t want a quinceanera because I knew how much money it cost. Other than that, I don’t think there is anything else that I can relate to besides living in the Valley.
The book had its moments. There were parts where it was funny and there were those where it was just cheesy and a bit boring. There are many things that I would like to change. One of them is writing the point of view in Santiago’s perspective but in a different plot. Another change is making it supernatural instead because the story kind of hinted at that. I believe the
story still could have continued instead of leaving it where it left off and be more in depth. It would have been more interesting like that.
I would not recommend this book to another person unless that person likes cheesy and short.
