Fantastic quinces are always planned for Latina girls. For Madelyn Johnson, she never had a quince before. But this summer, it's about to change. Madelyn and her three best friends---Jane Viva,
Carmen Bison, and Addie James; along with a "friend" known as Johnson Bison; Carmen's older brother. This year, Madelyn signs up for an internship at City Hall so it would look good on her college
application. But while working, she meets a girl named Sarita; a Mexican girl and decides to plan a quinceañera for her since she has small idea. But there is so much to do! Plan guests,
choreograph dances, and there is Johnson. And Madelyn is juggling all of this. How will she not go overboard and have a successful business?
