The fifteenth birthday is particularly special for every girl: In Latin American families, this day is celebrated with a feast known as ‘Quinceañera’. Monique Salinas was pleased with everything on this day. She lives with her family in Benavides, Texas, in the US.
Monique’s family had had a difficult past. Ten years earlier, Monique’s borther, Mikey, died in a car accident. Monique, who was just 5 at the time, misses him terribly every day.
