After several breakups with Joe, Peri agrees to tour Mexico with him, but why? Was it because she was the one who mapped, planned, plotted, researched hotels, restaurants, and tourist sites? Was it because of the hours she spent writing letters and making long distance phone calls to confirm reservations and cancel reservations with Joe's friends, people she had yet to meet? Or was it something else that tugged at her mind and heart that pulled her to go? Was it her angels as a fortuneteller suggested? After hardships and disappointments, Peri is given opportunities for personal growth while on vacation in Mexico. She and Joe, Peri's on-and-off- again boyfriend, and his friends whom they meet up with, often forget about Peri, at first, while they reminisce using their native tongue, Spanish. Not consciously at first, Peri begins to embrace those moments of isolation in the midst of everyone. She begins to understand that something good is happening inside her.
