Rooster has always called Kady his madrina, his godmother. Born in Cuba and brain-damaged at birth, Rooster thinks Kady can protect him from all harm. But 15-year-old Kady doesn’t want to be looking out for Rooster anymore. And she doesn’t want to live in a tiny house, wear tacky clothes, or get stuck with endless chores on her family’s ever struggling citrus farm. She wants to be with her new boyfriend, Jon, and his golden gang, people with money to burn and all the time in the world to indulge themselves. She doesn’t realize, until tragedy strikes, just how much her budding romance costs her. Set in the bell-bottomed and tie-dyed late 1960s, this richly textured novel has moments of high humor, memorable characters, and resonant dialogue.
