With Lina’s mom gone, it’s been hard for her and her father. Just when she needs to turn to her dad the most, she has to turn to a body hiding behind a book. Lina needs to pull her dad out of his books, but how? Lina’s best friend and neighbor, Vanessa, has been having trouble with her mother as well. Even though her mother and father have been divorced for quite a few years now, her mother is still a man hater. She’s a man hater who is always making confetti filled eggs, homemade, oversized t-shirts, and is always glued to the soap opera channel. The two girls put their heads together to come up with a plan to get their parents out of their shells. Could love letters from a secret admirer be just the thing? Love letters from a Silver Fox may be just the thing to build their relationships up from the shambles they had been in previously.

Throughout the story, Lina always seems to be finding a new adventure to get herself into. While keeping herself busy with school, Lina starts failing English. At the same time, she manages to reveal her pent-up emotions through a Hazel and Fiver adventure, rather than talking to someone instead. Lina has a hard time trying not to trip over her freakishly long legs and her mixed up emotions.

Honestly, this was one of the best books I have ever read. This is an easy to read, easy to relate to book. Lopez has an amazing way of grabbing your attention, and keeping it! Lina’s teenage reality takes place in Corpus Christi, Texas, taking us with her on an exciting, humorous, journey. This journey is set in a modern day world. If you enjoy quick reads, this would be a great book for you, or anyone you know who enjoys quick reads.
