Sofi Mendoza's Guide to Getting Lost in Mexico

Product Description: Even though Sofi Mendoza was born in Mexico, she's spent most of her life in California. But when Sofi and her friends sneak off for a weekend in Tijuana, she gets in real trouble. To Sofi's shock, the border patrol says that her green card is counterfeit. Until her parents can sort out the paperwork and legal issues, Sofi is stuck in Mexico. In the meantime, Sofi's parents arrange for her to stay with long-lost relatives in rural Baja. Through the unexpected crash course in her heritage, Sofi comes to appreciate that she has a home on both sides of the border.
