From the author of Stef Soto, Taco Queen comes this story about sisterhood, friendship, and the intricacies of blended families.

Raquel y Lucinda Mendoza solían ser inseparables, pero desde el divorcio de sus padres Raquel se ha vuelto muy mandona. En eso llega la pandemia y las hermanas se ven obligadas a hacer cuarentena en el rancho de su padre. De pronto Raquel ve una oportunidad de recuperar todo lo que han perdido. Si logran convencer a su mamá que venga al rancho, tal vez consigan que sus padres se enamoren otra vez y le den a la familia la oportunidad de empezar de nuevo.

Raquel and Lucinda Mendoza used to be inseparable. But ever since their parents split, Raquel has been acting like editor-in-chief of their lives. Then a pandemic hits, and the sisters are forced to spend the lockdown at their dad’s ranch house. Suddenly Raquel sees a chance to get back everything they’ve lost. If they can convince their mom to come along, maybe they can get their parents to fall in love again and give their family a second chance, a do-over.
