Reina Quintana doesn't have a normal life with her mom dying of cancer and having to take care of everything to do with money, dropping high school with three jobs. Life is hard, But when an opportunity comes to leave the small island of Puerto Rico and move to Portland, Oregon she takes it for her mother and herself. Being in a new place completely different to what your used to, alone can be hard, but In life you get just about as many chances as you're willing to take. *This story has multiple gentlemen swooning / interested in the main protagonist so if that's not your cup of tea then be warned.* I got the motivation to do something like this from the lovely books by C.L Stone and the Academy series, but this characters are mine.
