Publisher's Summary

Kesa Sapiro had to grow up fast. With her parents gone and a little sister to protect, Kesa has spent over a decade of her life trying to keep a roof over their heads. She's learned the hard way that love is a luxury and that the price is way too high. When her sister Josie announces she wants to marry a boy she's known for less than a month, Kesa immediately forbids it.

Shannon Dealan is floored when her son-by-choice says he wants to get married to a girl he's just met. Shannon has real reason to scrutinize any strangers who come into Paz's life. She's not about to let him do anything stupid - and that includes believing in love at first sight. She knows too well there's no such thing.

Hoping to soften the objections of their jaded, overbearing elders, Josie and Paz arrange for them to meet and discuss the future like civilized adults...but absolutely nothing goes as planned.

Something Wonderful and Different

I have never met a KK book I didn’t like, and most I have loved. This one is no exception. Loved the diversity in the story - immigrants,
characters of color, ethnic foods, families struggling to get on their feet financially and not coming into the story wealthy and living at the higher rungs of society. Loved it.

Learn from the young...

Loved this book, it has a great twist, it is well told and loved the characters, I would have loved to know about the last dress made in it... and Abby Craden as usually made this book even better.

Great.

I loved Because I Said So. A great topic, 2 young lovers who want to marry. NOW. The two adults in the picture need to keep their heads. Abby Craden does her usual fabulous job with the narration.
