But life in El Paso is far more exciting, as mini-skirts, rock music, and the sexual revolution shatter tradition on both sides of the border.Poised between two countries and hovering at the divide of childhood and womanhood, her fractured family no longer providing safe ground, Inez must choose whether to make the dangerous leap her parents never quite made, the leap faced by every new American: letting go of the old country to embrace a new destiny in the United States.
