Lily Robbins has always been a model student, the one who always follows the rules. But suddenly, Lily is questioning the rules---both at home and at school -- and it's getting harder to keep her mouth shut about it. When Lily blows up and goes off at her science teacher, she suddenly becomes Ms. Popularity. And soon Lily starts thinking that being a little bit 'bad' actually feels good. Of course, in true Lily fashion, she goes all the way with it, adopting an 'alternative' hair-do, and designing a rebel T-shirt that pushes the dress code. But when a truly worthy cause arises, Lily's new reputation precedes her. Lily realizes she needs to regain the trust of those who matter most to her before she can help her best friend win against discrimination.

The Rebel is the memoir of a revolutionary woman, Leonor Villegas de Magnon (1876-1955), who was a fiery critic of dictator Porfirio Diaz and a conspirator and participant in the Mexican Revolution. Villegas de Magnon rebelled against the ideals of her aristocratic class and against the traditional role of women in her society. In 1910 Villegas moved from Mexico to Laredo, Texas, where she continued supporting the revolution as a member of the Junta Revolucionaria (Revolutionary Council) and as a fiery editorialist in Laredo newspapers. In 1913, she founded La Cruz Blanca (The White Cross) to serve as a corps of nurses for the revolutionary forces active from the border region to Mexico City. Many women like Villegas de Magnon from both sides of the border risked their lives and left their families to support the revolution. Years later, however, when their participation had still been unacknowledged and was running the risk of being forgotten, Villegas de Magnon decided to write her personal account of this history. The Rebel covers the period from 1876 through 1920, documenting the heroic actions of the women. Written in the third person with a romantic fervor, the narrative interweaves autobiography with the story of La Cruz Blanca. Until now Villegas de Magnon's written contributions have remained virtually unrecognized - peripheral to both Mexico and the United States, fragmented by a border. Not only does her work attest to the vitality, strength and involvement of women in sociopolitical concerns, but it also stands as one of the very few written documents that consciously challenges stereotyped misconceptions of Mexican Americans held by both Mexicans and Anglo-Americans.

Growing up in the shadows of everyone in the Rebel Guardians, Lily finds that it's hard to break free of the 'little girl' mentality that her parents, as well as her aunts and uncles, have, at least where she's concerned. Maybe it's because of the issues she's had since she was a teenager, but living under the proverbial thumb has gotten on her last nerve. Toss in a biker who has commitment issues, and she's all over the place emotionally. When her brother, Luca, asks her to come visit, she practically tosses everything into her car and takes off.The first time he saw her, she was just a little girl. Even then her soul called to his, he watched her bloom into a beautiful, courageous woman. Maxum feels cold and dead inside... unless she's around. As she's grown and matured, his thoughts for her have changed from that of a brotherly type of love. She's no longer a gangly little girl, she's a siren, a vixen, a charmer and he's under her spell. But his past won't allow him to love her, to honor her, to give her everything her heart is all but begging him for. But things come to light, and Maxum must make a decision. It'll be the hardest one of his life. Time to face those demons and overcome the monsters that sleep under his bed. When the past threatens the future, who will remain standing? **Suitable for ages 18+ due to language and adult situations**
