Small towns erect big barriers in this sincere and inspiring story about the pressures of fitting in—and the courage it takes to step outside the lines.


Fabiola, a high-school senior in the small Texas town of Dos Rios, knows that there are borders everywhere. They run through the community and in between cultures, separating the five-star white establishments from the Mexican restaurant operated by her parents. Even at Dos Rios High School, there are some lines that just shouldn't be crossed.

While Fabiola juggles the responsibilities of school and work, she must also look after her little sister, Alexis, who is just starting high school. Fabiola tries to explain the rules of the school—who to hang out with, who to stay away from—but when Alexis ignores her advice and falls for the wrong boy, Fabiola must cross the lines to protect her.

This heartfelt story about a girl who won't accept limitations will resonate with readers looking for an authentic view of teen life.
