    Hands down Something in Between is the best YA contemporary book of the year If you’re only familiar with Melissa de la Cruz’s fantasy and paranormal books I’m going to put a huge disclaimer this is drastically different than her previous works It is her best yet She came back to her original roots which is realistic fiction ala chick lit where the stakes are higherSomething in Between follows the story of Jasmin

    I was kind of hoping that Something In Between will be my very first international YA novel with a Filipino for a main character but Jasmine even though she was born in the Philippines is completely an American at heart and I do not blame her because it’s where she grew up It’s where she has established her

Jasmine de los Santos has always done what’s expected of her Pretty and popular she’s studied hard made her Filipino immigrant parents proud and is ready to reap the rewards in the form of a fu. 355 starsThere are bits of this book that I LOVE and bits that I don t I really do think so many people need to read it and that it s such an important story to come out right before the election WE NEED MORE STORIES LIKE THIS Especially from ownvoices Thank you Melissa for sharing this story that is so similar to your own and for showing a different side of things to many people that wouldn t otherwise know of itI really liked the characters and the overall plot YeH it was predictable but what YA contemporary isn t I loved having all the main characters and a majorit of the side characters all be POC it was so GREAT What I didn t really love was the writing It was pretty straight and flat and boring The story was interesting enough to keep me reading but the actual writing of it was lackluster There was a bit of insta love and suspended disbelief again YA contemporary life and though there were some really cute and nice parts and I felt some emotion during them I wasn t invested enough to feel them deeply Even with that being said I really do think a lot of people need this book and need to read this book It s a uick read but an important story READ IT

Ll college scholarshipAnd then everything shatters A national scholar award invitation compels her parents to reveal the truth their visas expired years ago Her entire family is illegal That means. I received this on a read to review basis from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Thank you to the author Melissa de la Cruz and the publisher Harleuin Teen for this opportunityThis is the story of teenage Jasmine de los Santos Cheer captain A student hospital volunteer national college scholar winner of Filipino origin and oh yeah an undocumented citizen of the USA The story could well have been a solely dark and harrowing one but the author chose to address the issue of Jasmine and her family s alien status through first introducing the reader to them as individuals I loved this approach as it meant that I created a bond with these characters before pitying their predicament and empathizing with their emotional uandary They are than their green card and de la Cruz introduces them as suchI felt that the initial emotional impact that this story generated was lost about the midday point Jasmine meets a boy who happens to be the son of a political figure who is distinctly against the stay of illegal immigrants in the country That and her strict Filipino parents make their relationship a troubled one My issue with this arose when the main plot started to take a back seat to their romantic encounters and her angsty inner monologues concerning her feelings The two plot points did merge to make a whole cohesive story but I still would have preferred this without any romance in it at all as it often felt surplus to the important story that was being narrated Jasmine was such an interesting character her story a touching one and her feelings on it were honest and real this did not need romance or boy drama to boost appeal or popularityI adored the mix of ethnicity that this book offered in both main and side characters and Jasmine s love for both her heritage and the USA were wonderful to read about The story also written with a beautiful melodic and soulful tone to the writing that was so soothing to read I just wish that this story would have remained true to its initial synopsis There is already an overabundance of romance stories in the YA genre and this did not need to become another one of them
