In Dos Rios, Texas, life is all about borders-and what happens when you cross the line. A fresh new series in the tradition of Bluford High explores what it's like to grow up on the edge.

Fabi doesn't want a quinceañera. She'd rather go on a trip to Paris or NYC for her fifteenth birthday. But when the meanest mean girl in Dos Rios, Melodee Stanton, humiliates her in front of the whole school, Fabi is ready to throw down (quince girl style).

Fabi is tired of everyone telling her who she should be and how she should act. She's tired of trying to make everyone else happy. Fabi is determined to have a quince that will put Melodee Stanton and her prissy squad to shame. She will have the biggest quince the town has ever seen-even if she has to beg, borrow, and steal to get it.

Malín Alegría is the author of Estrella's Quinceañera and Sofi Mendoza's Guide to Getting Lost in Mexico. She currently lives in San Francisco, California, where she teaches, writes, and spends as much time as possible playing in the dirt. Visit her online at

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Border Town #1: Crossing the Line“Packed with action and surprising twists and turns up to the very last page, this start to the new Border Town series is a gripping mystery and also a warm, contemporary Latino drama of extended family and friends… With lots of laughs, especially about small town lack of privacy and about extended family, the drama is both suspenseful and touching.” --Booklist“A fast-paced, easy-to-read book that Latino teenagers will enjoy to read – mostly because they will see themselves in the pages.” – The Hispanic Reader
