Fiction • 5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2003

Told from the alternating viewpoints of six Latinas who bonded while studying at Boston College, this engaging soap opera celebrates women's friendship while raising issues of prejudice, wife-battering, assimilation, cheating boyfriends, and lesbian identity. Having pursued different life paths--journalist, well-to-do wife, TV anchor, and struggling rock singer--each woman has reached a crisis. Hard truths must be faced, decisions made. The author reads well, but unevenly, not quite carrying off a distinctive voice for each of the women. Sex, romance, humor, a refreshing perspective, appealing characters, and a happy resolution add up to escapist entertainment with a Latina heart. E.S.
