Sweet 15

"Destiny Lozada's fifteenth birthday is approaching, and Mami is set on a traditional quinceañera ceremony. However, Destiny's fiery, feminist older sister, America, is against the whole thing, and Papi is trying to stay out of it. Meanwhile, Destiny worries about finding a "caballero," the traditional male escort; starting high school; and her Puerto Rican-American family's financial struggles. With pressure mounting, Destiny seeks escape in skateboarding and watching TV. But she can't avoid things forever, and, ultimately, she finds the confidence and courage to speak out for what she wants and to determine what her quinceañera means — to her." — Booklist
