about this book

Inspirada en la Lotería, un juego de azar mexicano, esta novela es una alegre y graciosa historia de mamacitas y mariachis, charreadas y concursos de belleza. En el centro de la historia están Nataly y Consuelo, mejores amigas que residen en Lavalandia, California, donde pasan sus días trabajando en la Gran Fábrica de Quesos y sus noches coqueteando con los vaqueros en su bar favorito, el Gran Cinco-Cuatro. Sin embargo, la vida de ambas está a punto de dar un giro extraño, en el cual se cruzarón con Javier, un mariachi cristiano nacido de nuevo; su madre, Lulabell, una hechicera; y Lucha, la querida de Javier. En ¡Caramba!, la experiencia americana se desenvuelve de manera conmovedora y deslumbrante a la vez.
