With summer approaching, 16 year-old América has two issues with her life in the United States, or so she thinks. She hates school, and she hates her aunt Carolina’s alcoholic husband, Joey. She passes the days shoplifting, hanging out with her friends and trying to avoid Joey. After a life-changing event, América, whose Spanish is limited, is sent to Buenos Aires, Argentina, to live with her reclusive and anti-American grandmother, Lucía América Campos. In Argentina, América struggles to find her place with a grandmother she has never known and to hold onto a friendship with Sergio, a neighbor twice her age.
