Publisher Description:
Evie Gomez finally has it all: a sweet boyfriend, two "mejor amigas,"

and an upcoming sixteenera that's the talk of the school. "Que"

cool, no?

Too bad reality has a way of ruining things. When her grades start to slip,

Evie's parents threaten to cancel her party. The good news? All she has to

do is volunteer in the community to raise her grades. The bad news? Since

it's the middle of the semester, the best remaining option is working at

the Southern California Horse Reserve. Then again..."ranchero" life?

"Charros"? Maybe things will work out after all.

Or maybe not. Things with boyfriend Alex start to fizzle, party-girl pal

Raquel slides down a spiral of boys and booze, Dee Dee -- who only recently

re-entered Evie's life -- considers moving back to Mexico City, and to top

it all off, Evie's flirting with someone she never expected to like --

ranch hand Arturo (even with his "que" fugly cowboy boots).

Things can't get "mas" complicated...can they?
