From the Publisher:

Named to the 1999 Massachussetts Children's Book Award Master List. Named to the New York Public Library's 1999 Books for the Teen Age.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6. After her parents die in an automobile accident, Consuelo, a Mexican American, leaves her home and familiar lifestyle in Dos Palos, CA, to live with her American grandmother in the Los Angeles suburbs. Initially convinced that she cannot adjust to the pace of life in southern California and without the companionship of her Spanish-speaking cousins, she nevertheless finds adventure in the old deserted movie lot that abuts her grandmother's private community. Compelled by curiosity to explore the area, Consuelo is soon embroiled in mysterious and potentially dangerous goings-on. Together with her growing group of school friends, she discovers a connection between a recent rash of local burglaries and the presence of some shady characters hiding out on the movie lot. Within the story are themes of winning and loss, the building of a loving and trusting relationship between generations, and letting go of the past. Consuelo and her friends sift successfully through their initial differences to find a firm basis for friendship and tolerance. Consuelo is a refreshingly average sixth grader who could have relocated from any neighborhood. A satisfying adventure story for all young people, but especially so for Hispanic students looking to read about someone with their heritage.?Sylvia V. Meisner, Allen Middle School, Greensboro, NC
