A #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

She had her whole life planned. She knew who she was and where she was going. Until the truth changed everything.

Jasmine de los Santos has always done what’s expected of her. She’s studied hard, made her Filipino immigrant parents proud and is ready to reap the rewards in the form of a full college scholarship to the school of her dreams.

And then everything shatters. Her parents are forced to reveal the truth: their visas expired years ago. Her entire family is illegal. That means no scholarships, maybe no college at all and the very real threat of deportation.

As she’s trying to make sense of this new reality, her world is turned upside down again by Royce Blakely. He’s funny, caring and spontaneous — basically everything she’s been looking for at the worst possible time — and now he’s something else she may lose.

Jasmine will stop at nothing to protect her relationships, family and future, all while fighting the hard truths of being undocumented.
