Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"When Juan Ruiz proposes marriage to fifteen-year-old Ana Cancion, and promises to take her to New York City, she has to say yes. It doesn't matter that his is twice her age or that there is no love between them. Their marriage is an opportunity for her entire close-knit family to eventually leave the Dominican Republic and immigrate. But Ana is now lonely and miserable. When Juan goes home to protect his family's assets, he leaves his free-spirited younger brother Cesar to take care of Ana. Suddenly, Ana is free and imagines the possibility of a different kind of life in America. But when Juan returns, Ana must decide once again between her heart and her duty to her family."--from back cover.
