review ó Mexican High 105 Hard at exclusive clubs dress in expensive clothing and see of their housekeepers than they do of their globe trotting parents But Mila has in common with them than they know her father whose identity has been kept from her is a high ranking politician with whom Mila’s mother had a one night stand in her hippie days Now Mila is determined to discover who he is whatever the cost. well basically if you want a scandalous summary of my place of employment read this Written by an ASF grad who is a bit full of herself and writes in the voice of an ego centric teenage girl aren t all teenage girls ego centric perhaps who she was perhaps who she is I am not sure But it s fun bc I know all the places she talks about and can relate in some ways In other ways though it s a bit of a stretch
