Fifteen-year-old Mari Pujols believes that the baby she is carrying will finally mean she'll have a family member who will love her deeply and won't ever leave her-not like her mama, who took off when she was eight, or her papi, who's in jail, or her abuela, who wants as little to do with her as possible. But when doctors discover a potentially fatal heart defect in the baby, Mari faces choices she never could have imagined.
