Just weeks before she's set to start school, her parents divorce and her father sells her childhood home, leaving Lizet, her mother, and Leidy-Lizet's older sister, a brand-new single mom-without a steady income and scrambling for a place to live ... Pulled between life at college and the needs of those she loves, Lizet is faced with difficult decisions that will change her life --
