    Review » Estrella's uinceanera 102 Estrella's uinceaneraThis was a 3 star book for me I would have loved to give this a higher score but there were some flaws I couldn't overlookFirst the book is full of clichés Poor girl on a scholarship starts a new school gets new rich friends and dumps her old friends Girl is ashamed of her family her culture and her lifestyle Girl likes poor boy but is sought by the rich bad boy Girl will learn
