Amigas: Fifteen Candles

A new series of novels with a Latin American spin called Amigas was inspired by the one-and-only Jennifer Lopez (y'all might know her as J.Lo). Check out our review of the first book in the series by Veronica Chambers: Fifteen Candles!


Sweet Fifteen

You know how lots of American girls celebrate big when they turn 16 years old? Well in Latin cultures the big birthday in a young girl's life is her 15th birthday! It's usually celebrated with a HUGE party called a Quincinera! In Amigas: Fifteen Candles by author Veronica Chambers, it's Quincinera Season in Miami, Florida! Beaches, boys, sun and fun - the city is heating up, and there's tons of fantastic quincinera parties being thrown. For Alicia Cruz and her three best friends, Carmen, Jamie and Gaz, the parties are a normal part of summer.


Party Girls

But this summer, things are going to change. After meeting Sarita, a new girl in town, at her internship, Alicia ends up volunteering to help organize Sarita's quince. She also volunteers her three BFFs. Soon Alicia is drowning in prep-work and turning into a quince-zilla...and it isn't even her party! But there is just so much to do: shoes to buy, dances to choreograph...and then there is Gaz.


Flirt Alert

Gaz is Alicia's love interest, and he's being flirtier than usual with Alicia...what's a chica to do? It seems like Alicia is dangerously close to losing her friends...and her mind! Will she learn to trust her amigas and rock the party? You'll have to read Amigas: Fifteen Candles by Veronica Chambers to find out! And watch for more books in this fun new series coming up soon!

Think Sindy and A.J. Can Be Friends?

  • Yeah, definitely. They just had a misunderstanding.
  • No way. A.J. doesn't deserve to be Sindy's friend.
  • Maybe if they both apologize for how they acted.

Well, bc boys and girls have different strengths in sports that don't really work well competing against each other. Exactly. Because boys and girls have different body types, they shouldn't and don't play sports with each other (not in, like, professional teams and stuff at least). It isn't harming girls, it's making sure girls don't get harmed.
