"Mexico City, 1988: Long before iTunes or MP3s, you said "I love you" with a mixtape. Meche, awkward and fifteen, has two equally unhip friends, Sebastian and Daniela, and a whole lot of vinyl records to keep her company. When she discovers how to cast spells using music, the future looks brighter for the trio. The three friends will piece together their broken families, change their status as non-entities, and maybe even find love. Mexico City, 2009: Two decades after abandoning the metropolis, Meche returns for her estranged father's funeral. It's hard enough to cope with her family, but then she runs into Sebastian, reviving memories from her childhood she thought she buried a long time ago. What really happened back then? What precipitated the bitter falling out with her father? Is there any magic left?"--Page [4] of cover.

I came across this book due to a short story she wrote elsewhere and I liked it.
I think this is supposed to be 'magic-realism' but it's not. It's really just a love story with a bit of 'magic' thrown in (well more than a bit but the story/writing just isn't that magical.)
What it is good for is finding music you've not heard of or forgot. That part was fun for me. Quite possibly not for anyone else.

A fun read for music lovers. Three misfit teens explore the magical power of music in this tale of love, regret and finding just the right record to change your life. Cue up Fame by David Bowie!
