Evie is living the high school dream: she's got a great family, super friends like Dee Dee and Raquel, and she's finally Alex's girl. It can only get better when her parents promise her a sixteenth birthday that will rock the school. However, there's a catch: if Evie's grades fall, the party is off! <BR/><BR/>Sabrina, Evie's seemingly perfect older sister, arrives home from college suddenly and won't leave her room. Raquel is out with boys every night and drinks booze like it's water. Dee Dee is longing for her boyfriend back in Mexico City and wants to move back there. <BR/><BR/>Evie tries her best to stay out of the drama in everyone's lives. It's not as easy it should be. Volunteering at a horse stable seems to be a great way to earn extra credit. It's hard for her to keep her mind on the horses instead of Arturo, the cute know-it-all who works his way into Evie's heart. Alex is preoccupied with catching the perfect wave, so what harm can a little flirting do? <BR/><BR/>Evie's got to figure it all out and come out without a scratch. Is it even possible? Why can't a girl just have fun? <BR/><BR/>SCANDALOSA is an enjoyable book set in the heart of California. Evie seemed like a spoiled little rich girl at first but she's got a caring heart. I liked the mix of Spanish and Mexican influence that was found throughout the book, too.

a good read
I love reading books about life in the hispanic culture. I enjoyed the story and characters in this novel and look forward to reading more from this author. The writing style is siliar to the novel, Single Latina Female by D. L. Blanco which is a really good book, too.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
