In Maya's Divided World, the well ordered and productive life that Maya has been able to accomplish during her high school years receives a sudden jolt, and everything seems to come undone when her parents announce their impending divorce. Her mother's traditional family almost disowns her when they hear the bad news, but their surprise and dismay is nothing compared to the depression and loss experienced by Maya, who had no idea that her parents were growing apart.
In her confusion, Maya abandons her friends for a newer, rougher set, and generally turns her back on all of the positive values, aspirations and accomplishments that once meant so much to her. The reaction of Maya's friends and family to her disorientation makes for engrossing, enriching reading.
When a seventeen-year-old Mexican American girl starts getting into trouble as a reaction to her parents' divorce, she is helped by a psychologist who has problems of her own.
