Delia's Crossing (8-6-2011)

Delia's Crossing                                           
by V. C. Andrews

KIDNAPPED BY CRUEL FATE... Secuestrado por sino cruel After her parents are killed in a truck accident, Delia Yebarra's life is turned upside down. At fifteen, she leaves the rural Mexican village where she grew up and embarks on a new life in America. Coming to her wealthy aunt Isabella's huge estate in Palm Springs, California, should be a dream come true for a simple country girl like Delia -- so why does it feel like a nightmare? A PRISONER OF DESTINY... Un preso del destino Her aunt refuses to acknowledge Delia's heritage, relegating her to servants' quarters with a licentious language tutor intent on exploiting a beautiful young foreigner. Her cousin Edward is kind, but cousin Sophia is cruel, manipulative, and resentful of Delia's smoky Latina looks. And just when Delia tries to embrace the life of a real American girl, a heartbreaking chain of events sends her spiraling back to a Mexico she hardly recognizes.... Will Delia find a place to call home?

I haven't read a v.c.andrews in a long time... but of course I know that all her books are pretty ummmmm taboo... So I was surprised that her cousin did do anything with her. The only problem I had with this book was that some, very little Spanish wasn't translated... I mean most was but at parts I was like huh? So I give it 4 stars!
