Seventeen-year-old Caymen Meyers learned early that the rich are not to be trusted. And after years of studying them from behind the cash register of her mom's porcelain-doll shop, she has seen nothing to prove otherwise. Enter Xander Spence-he's tall, handsome, and oozing rich. Despite his charming ways and the fact that he seems to be one of the first people who actually gets her, she's smart enough to know that his interest won't last. Because if there's one thing she's learned from her mother's warnings, it's that the rich have a short attention span. But just when Xander's loyalty and attentiveness are about to convince Caymen that being rich isn't a character flaw, she finds out that money is a much bigger part of their relationship than she'd ever realized. With so many obstacles standing in their way, can she close the distance between them? Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • The charming story is beautifully written, and the characters are well developed. . . . West's novel is sweet and captivating. School Library Journal
  • “In this poignant memoir about her childhood in Mexico, Reyna Grande skillfully depicts another side of the immigrant experience—the hardships and heartbreaks of the children who are left behind. Through her brutally honest firsthand account of growing up in Mexico without her parents, Grande sheds light on the often overlooked consequence of immigration—the disintegration of a family.”

    Sonia Nazario, Pulitzer Prize winner, and author of Enrique’s Journey

  • “I’ve been waiting for this book for decades.”

    Sandra Cisneros, USA Today bestselling author

  • “A brutally honest book…akin to being the Angela’s Ashes of the modern Mexican immigrant experience.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • “Grande captivates and inspires in her memoir…Recounting her story without self-pity, she gracefully chronicles the painful results of a family shattered by repeated separations and traumas.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “The poignant yet triumphant tale Grande tells of her childhood and eventual illegal immigration puts a face on issues that stir vehement debate.”
