Marin is an adolescent girl (around 14). She is apparently "boy crazy" and hence a bad influence on those younger than her. Marin is sent to Chicago to live with relatives. These relatives want to send her back to her parents. Marin has a bad reputation for smoking, dancing all night and staring at boys. Esperanza finds her a valuable information source for all things forbidden.
