Caridad Ferrer, Adios to My Old Life: a young adult novel featuring Ali Montero, a serious teenage guitarist and singer who is chosen for a reality show for Latin pop stars titled Oye Mi Canto. This may sound like a cheesy fluff book, but it wasn't, not at all. I was completely enthralled throughout with Ali's thoughts and dreams, and her first romance. There was one part that so harrowed me that I was still thinking of it the next day, and the ending is completely satisfying. Read this! It's great!
