Fifteen-year-old Mariana Ruíz thinks she has her summer all planned, until she realizes her father has other ideas. Finding out she will spend the summer with faraway relatives in Puerto Rico sends her in a tailspin she wasn’t prepared for, or so she thought. Mariana soon realizes that finding out where you come from just may mean a trip to paradise. But the dark secrets she unlocks about her family while on the island give Mariana a lot more than a simple summer vacation.
