Though everyone in the village of Tres Montes thinks Sonia Ocampo is blessed, she knows she is nothing but a fraud. She's spent her life listening to the hopes and wishes of her neighbors and family, but when a classmate dies despite her prayers, she is forced to realize that she has no special powers ? no way to prevent bad things from happening. Rather than disenchant her friends and embarrass her family, she leaves home to work in the house of a wealthy woman in the city. There she is finally what she wants to be ? just a girl like any other. But when misfortune falls upon her family, she must confront the truth, no matter how difficult. With a hint of magical realism and romance, Meg Medina weaves a poignant tale about a girl who dares to face life's harsh truths and find power within herself.
