Once upon a time, all was well in the Flores household, until the unexpected death of Lina's mother. To deal with his loss, Lina's father buries himself in books.

Next door, the Cantus are not faring any better. Lina's best friend, Vanessa, must bear with her mother's self-prescribed therapy after her divorce: making confetti-filled cascarones out of eggshells. Every day.

The girls are able to tolerate their parents' coping mechanisms at first. Then, Mr. Flores begins to pressure his daughter to excel academically ("Why does he have to turn everything -- even a volleyball game! --into a vocabulary lesson?"), and Mrs. Cantu begins to impose her distrust of men on her daughter ("Delicate flowers have no business hanging out with weeds").

Because Lina and Vanessa are at an age when boys are more interesting than school, they devise a plan to pursue their own romantic interests by fixing up their single parents with each other. But the plan soon turns sour when Lina's crush on "the best-looking egghead in Corpus Christi" doesn't develop as smoothly as Vanessa's. When Vanessa begins to choose her new boyfriend's company over Lina's, Lina is left "feeling like a sitcom that's been cancelled for a snazzier show."

In addition, Mr. Flores and Mrs. Cantu end up being a better match than the girls expected, and this makes Lina realize that she hasn't quite dealt with her mother's absence -- or her father's, for that matter -- these past few years. Suddenly, she feels abandoned, neglected and cheated by all those she loves.

These hard lessons, however, become navigable through the series of coping devices Lina adapts: the list of wise dichos her mother taught her, and a fabricated plot summary of a book she never read, in which she's able to detail her heartbreaks and anxieties. Eventually, Lina makes sense of her chaotic adolescence and she's able to transform her rotten-egg days into colorful cascarones.

Raven by Allison Van Diepen

"The door that was always closed is opening, and I am consumed. I don’t know if a full minute goes by that I don’t think of him, that I don’t replay how it felt to have his hand brush mine, his eyes look my way.

And yet he’s hiding, still. He talks as if my feelings for him are in the past, as if they couldn’t possibly be relevant now that I know the truth about him. But I don’t have that kind of power over how I feel. And if he doesn’t know that, he’s blind."

Zin dances with fire in every step, speaks with a honey-sweet voice, and sees with eyes that can peer into your soul. It's no wonder Nicole is madly in love with him. Their friendship is the only thing that saves her from the boredom of school and the turmoil of her family life. But she cannot understand why he keeps her at a distance, even though she can feel his soul reaching out for hers. Zin carries a very old secret. When Nicole uncovers the truth, her love may be the only thing that can save him from it.
