Jaime never wanted to go on the school exchange trip to Spain in the first place. She finds life awkward enough as it is and, because of her embarrassing blushing habit, she tries to avoid drawing attention to herself. Living in someone else’s home, and in a foreign country, is way out of her comfort zone! But she reluctantly has agreed to stay with the carefully selected and colourfully-named Concepción Inmaculada. After all, a girl named after the Virgin Mary has got to be quiet, kind and gentle …

Wrong! Concha is a scary, rebellious, boy-mad loner with a mind of her own. Jaime is going to have to be prepared for anything and everything! Olé!

The author packs a great deal into this average-length teen book and every page had me wanting a little bit more. The characters in the story are superb: well fleshed out, with authentic voices for their age (and nationality).'
