"Eighteen-year-old Carmen takes on a summer internship that has her reuniting with estranged family for an over-the-top quinceaänera, reluctantly reconnecting to a long-lost ex-boyfriend, and finding happiness in the chaos"-- - (Baker & Taylor)

Accepting a humiliating unpaid internship working as a party princess in a ball gown, romance-minded Carmen embarks on a summer that is shaped by blistering Miami heat, an unexpected attraction and a spoiled cousin’s quinceañera. A first novel. 40,000 first printing. Simultaneous eBook. - (Baker & Taylor)

Perfect for fans of Jenny Han and Jane the Virgin, this immediately accessible and irresistibly fun rom-com debut will spin readers into an unforgettable summer of late-night dancing, broken hearts, second chances, and telenovela twists.

Carmen Aguilar just wants to make her happily ever after come true. Except apparently “happily ever after” for Carmen involves being stuck in an unpaid summer internship. Now she has to perform as a party princess! In a ball gown. During the summer. In Miami.

Fine. Except that’s only the first misfortune in what’s turning out to be a summer of Utter Disaster. 

But if Carmen can manage dancing in the blistering heat, fending off an oh-so-unfortunately attractive ex, and stopping her spoiled cousin from ruining her own quinceañera—Carmen might just get that happily ever after—after all.
