Look Both Ways in the Barrio BlancoBook - 2015
When Jacinta Juarez is paired with a rich, famous mentor, she is swept away from the diapers and dishes of her own daily life into a world of new experiences. But crossing the line into Miss's world is scary. Half of Jacinta aches for the comfort of Mama and the familiar safety of the barrio, while the other half longs to embrace a future that offers more than cleaning stuff for white people. When her family is torn apart, Jacinta needs to bring the two halves of herself together to win back everything she's lost. Can she channel the power she's gained from her mentor and the strength she's inherited from Mamá to save her shattered home life?--Amazon.com.
