A Novel for Young Readers
By Nancy Osa
(…that means “Howdy”in Spanish)
“WHAT CAN BE FUNNY about having to stand up in front of everyone you know, in a ruffly dress the color of Pepto-Bismol, and proclaim your womanhood? Nothing. Nada. Zip. Not when you’re fifteen—too young to drive, win the lottery, or vote for a president who might lower the driving and gambling ages. Nothing funny at all. At least that’s what I thought in September . . .”
