Storyline

Maricruz and Beatriz are best friends although Beatriz comes from a wealthy family and Maricruz does not. Both are about to turn 15, an age when they will leave their childhood behind. Maricruz, with her beauty, catches the attention of two youths: Pancho, a hardworking easygoing and honest young man, and Memo, the neighborhood punk. She falls in love with Pancho but her dominating mother does not approve of him because he is only a mechanic. She dreams of launching her daughter into society with a lavish debutante party; she wants her daughter to have a more comfortable life. But Pancho and Maricruz fight for their love... until Memo tricks Maricruz into thinking he has raped her and she breaks up with Pancho in shame. Beatriz also falls in love, but with Maricruz's brother, a good-for-nothing who takes advantage of her innocence and leaves her pregnant. Girls, welcome to adulthood... Written by Anonymous

Quinsenera
18 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This soapopera was good. Thalia's first leading role in a "telenovela". It becomes the first soap opera produced in Mexico for young audiences. Also produced by Carla Estrada, it included the participation of actress Adela Noriega as Maricruz in the leading role along with Thalía. Thalía plays Beatriz, the daughter of a wealthy family. She and her friend Maricruz - who is not so wealthy - are about to turn 15, an age when they will leave their childhood behind. Beatriz falls in love with Maricruz's brother, a young man who takes advantage of her and leaves her pregnant. The storyline generated a lot of controversy due to the fact that Beatriz got pregnant at such a young age. As a result, the Mexican press published articles about the subject and talked about the misinformation that children sometimes receive from parents. With this role, Thalía grew closer to the public, but especially caught the attention of all those teens who were facing the same problematic situation.
