car. She is happy because her family is in the car. She exclaims that her house is big and that it belongs to a rich family. Ana goes to school and feels very different. Her friends want a new Ford Mustang. They have lots of new clothes. Ana does not. She receives a letter from Ricardo and she sends a letter back to him. He sends his on August 20th and she sends hers September 3rd, almost half of a month apart from the other. They both tell about how they have been doing since they last met and Ana tells about the differences of how she feels, now that she is back from Mexico in California with her friends and family. They also discuss their classes and schools, seeing how they are similar and different from each other. Ana talks to the student body president, Paul. Ana wants to start a school-wide project. She wants students to donate clothes and money to be sent to those less fortunate in Mexico. Paul believes this is a great idea and likes it very much. They prepare a plan. There is a school dance. Rather than pay with money, the people attending pay by donating clothes for the project. In total $235 is collected. The clothes and money is sent to Mexico via a UPS truck. It arrives at the school Ricardo, Patricia, and Susana attend. Ana realizes something eventually. She realizes that her life is perfect and smiles because of realizing this.
