Friday

Giveaway: Damas, Dramas, and Ana Ruiz


All Ana Ruiz wanted was to have a traditional quinceañera for her daughter, Carmen. She thought it would be a nice way to mark this special time in her daughter's life. But Carmen still blamed Ana for her father Esteban's departure, as did everyone else. A good man is hard to find, especially at your age they told her. Why make a big deal about one little indiscretion? Carmen still saw her father as a superhero, and despite everything, Ana didn't want to ruin that for her. In the end, it's Esteban himself who ruins Carmen's image of him, when she catches him with his new pregnant girlfriend. And Ana discovers that if she's going to teach Carmen anything about what it means to be a woman, it will take more than simply a fancy party to do it....

** On a personal note - I was a Quinceañera - 16 years ago (wow, time sure flys). I can definitely relate to what having your Quinces celebrated entitles. Although I was mature for my age then and decided that I would much rather have a car or go on some fantastic trip through Europe - my mother found a way of convincing me to have the big party with all the hoopla and family and just argh... craziness. Too bad I don't have any pictures scanned if not I would totally embarass myself and post them here. I haven't read this book yet but it sounds like something I can definitely relate to and enjoy.

I have 5 copies to giveaway!

As always, leave a comment for one entry. Second entry if you follow, third if you follow on Twitter, extra entries for twitting about contest or sidebar posts, etc. I will also be giving extra entries to those who come by and comment on weekly book review posts. So the more comments the more entries.

I opted for a family party instead of a quinceañera.
But don't feel bad that was 18 years ago for me.

This sounds like a great book.
Thanks for the contest.
