Overview

Something in Between by Melissa de la Cruz

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.

It's unexpectedly compelling. I love how the author used real life issues that teens face today- that's what pulled me in. And at the same time I learned so much about it. From love, secrets, legal/illegal immigration, family, to new experiences, this book should not be passed up by teens today. A must-read!
