BLURB: The New Little Princess, a child star in the year 2026, is at the peak of her popularity. She has just used that popularity to raise funds and awareness worldwide until a ruthless military government in Guatemala was put under sanctions and spilled. She is deeply moved by a school shooting in Missouri she sees on the news and makes this her next "buena causa". She is determined to stop them and uses her popularity, her money and even a song to try to start a political movement against school shootings. But it is one thing to call for action and quite a different thing to be personally faced with the problem you are fighting.

No, you read "My Holiday In Guatemala", set in 2025, when the Princess visits "home" and witnesses an assassination.

This is "after the campaign" about Guatemala, set in 2026, when the Princess finds a new buena causa: set in America and totally different.

Same character (of course) but different story!
