Description

Dear Peaches,

America is perfect!

I love it here. I wish you could come visit -- we could go shopping on Market Street and you could meet all my new friends. And my new boyfriend. He looks exactly like Tobey Maguire (from Spider-Man, not Seabiscuit). We'll be the hottest couple at the Soirée!

I miss you!! xxxooo,
V.

Okay, so Vicenza isn't being totally honest with Peaches, her best friend back in Manila. But what fun is it being the new girl at snooty Grosvernor High? Or rooting through the Salvation Army for unholey cashmere sweaters? Or having culture-shocked, embarrassingly clueless parents? Maybe being Claude Caligari's ignored geometry partner is sort of fun, but Vicenza would rather be his girlfriend ... or at least his date to the annual fancy-schmancy Soirée d'Hiver. Instead, she's stuck going with scrawny family friend Freddie in an outlet-purchased, coupon-reduced dress that is nothing short of disaster!

But Vicenza won't be friendless, fashionless, or "fresh off the boat" for long -- it's only a matter of time before she sees what's right before her eyes, and her luck begins to change.
