Summary

Summary

Miata Ramirez is always losing things: sweaters, her lunch money, even her homework. Now, two days before her dance troupe is scheduled to perform the folklOrico, she has left her costume on the schoolbus. And it's Friday, so she won't be riding the bus again until Monday, and that will be too late! Miata's mother wore the folklOrico skirt years before when she was a little girl living in Mexico. After so many years, the skirt is worn and faded, but a rainbow of ribbons makes it still blaze with color and life. And now she's lost it. Will Miata find the skirt before her parents discover it's gone?
