(Delia #02) By; V.C. Andrews
Via GoodReads TORN BETWEEN TWO WORLDS...
Atrapada entre dos mundos
Delia Yebarra survived a treacherous desert crossing to protect her friend Ignacio from murder charges. Now, the time has come once again to leave her tiny Mexican hometown: Delia's cousin Edward convinces her to return to his world of wealth and privilege in Palm Springs, and soon Delia, a beautiful and popular senior at an exclusive private school, is living the American dream. But Delia will quickly discover that high society has a very dark underside.
A STRANGER IN BOTH OF THEM...
Extranjera en cualquiera de los dos
Delia's malicious cousin Sophia is sparking horrific rumors with Delia at their center. Racing to do damage control, Delia's mortified aunt Isabela introduces her troublesome niece to the handsome son of a wealthy Mexican American politician. An attraction sparks and a whirlwind romance begins...but Delia's heart won't let her forget her humble roots -- or Ignacio. And when tragedy tears her world apart, will it be too late to save the one she cares about the most?
My 2 Cents
Wow… The emotions I was left with after reading this book was… “wow”. As I was before with the first book, I actually wanted to pick up the 3rd book instead of writing this review down. other than that, I’m learning how to speak Spanish again. Haha
Delia, under Edward care has grow her own claws. With the help of Fani, her new emm.. acquaintance (I can’t bear to call her a friend to Delia), who took notice of Delia, took her under her wing and Delia learns how to snap back at Sophia. She has her own life. Ignacio still living wild in her mind… yet going.. and going.. and going.. as she hangs out more with Adan. Fani introduced Adan to Delia, not really sure what her motives were, but it seems that Delia and Adan gain a wonderful companion for each other, of course making Delia's life a bit tolerable.
Adan likes Delia.. more than like. She enjoys being with him too, but also, she felt guilty. I was actually scream thinking, “Be with him!” But of course, true to VC Andrews style, Delia was of course, felt guilty the whole time, thinking of Ignacio. She’s very much loyal to Ignacio, I gave her that. But in the same time, she was leading (?) Adan on, yet.. falling for him. Le sigh…
Tia Isabella likes to toy with that idea, in fact, she wanted Delia to be with Edward. In a way, she did care for Delia, but in a way she knows how. In some of the pages, I think she wished Delia was her daughter, instead of her annoying Sophia. Sophia sensed it and did whatever she could do, to get rid of Delia. To make sure, Delia “break” something so she could ruin Delia.
Edward and Jesse doing their best, regardless off to a college, mothered her. Protecting her for her Tia Isabella from being cruel to her and a wall from Sophia.
*** STOP READING BELOW THIS BIT***
However, when the event of their trip to Mexico, where Delia had a secret rendezvous with Ignacio, where the police finally caught him, thanks to Sophia’s doing, things seems to change. Either they can’t forgive her cause they felt use, or Edward just feel helpless… they actually stopped talking to her.
Woe… Not going to tell you how the book ends. You have to read it on your own.
Okay, I’m going to leave you with this so I can start with the next installment of this series. I hope the next will bring Delia happiness. I do wish for her that, she deserve it after a long time. Delia though, could count her blessings, because with every door closes, there’s always something another that would open and would be good to her.
