Dime tiene 15 años y siempre está enojada. Sus padres no la comprenden y su hermano quedó paralizado por un accidente. Cuando las peleas y las acusaciones la sobrepasan, Dime se muda con su hermano. Pero los problemas la siguen. Si Dime no entiende que debe comenzar a responsabilizarse de sus actos, nada va a cambiar.

Dime is fifteen and always angry. Her parents don't understand her, and her brother was paralyzed in an accident. When the fights and accusations become too much, Dime moves in with her brother. But her troubles follow her. Until she realizes that she has to start taking some responsibility, nothing will change.

"Appropriate for reluctant native Spanish readers, especially appealing to females. For students learning Spanish, this title is appropriate for strong second year students and beyond."
