What if you and your best friend had the same birthday, right down to the minute, and your lives mirrored each other’s in strange ways?
MILLENNIAL FEARS introduces the reader to Jazmín Valdez and Stephanie Bengochea, girls who share everything including their love of a childhood friend, Pedro Garcia. But once Jaz and Steph leave the Eastern Sierra for college, their bonds are tested. Do they marry Pedro, or is he off-limits? Do they return to their hometown to live and work, or do they remain in the big city? And while Jaz and Steph have been raised Catholic, what are their beliefs now that they are adults? Blessed with madrinas, Jaz and Steph struggle with the guidance their female mentors offer as they compete for their hearts and minds. Yet it is only when Angelica, Rosa Rodriguez’s wayward daughter, shows up that Jaz and Steph comprehend the true meaning of being gemelas del alma, or as Steph would say “cosmic twins.”
