Overall I liked this book I liked that the book was a uick interesting read with short chapters easily accessible language the author even includes a glossary of Spanish terms and a compelling storyline Even while the book included some harrowing scenes it was optimistic overall I really thought that the ending was a beautifully wrapped up full circle concerning one of the book s themes uinceanera and that the author did an excellent job bringing her story to such an endThe author also does an excellent job of navigating a difficult topic MexicoUS Immigration with a true mind to shed light on the horrifying conditions for the working poor In my opinion she did this without fishing for pity or overly politicizing her message She gives voice to a largely ignored classgroup within our society and observes parts of US urban culture with a new set of eyes letting the reader peek in to the ways that these oppressed and mainly poor people operate among one another read about the optimism and the sense of community they build and see the way they help one another It honestly had the potential to be really beautiful But at some points I have to say that I drew back from the story and found myself analyzingKeisha Jorge Flora these are the characters that Nora meets when she gets to the US I really enjoyed these characters and felt them nicely fleshed out I wish I could say the same about Nora the main character and Mama her mother however Those two characters whom we meet early in the book and follow from poverty stricken Mexico to poverty stricken Houston should as the main characters be even intricate than the minor characters mentioned above and yet at points in the story I felt disconnected from both of themOne of the reasons I may have felt a disconnect from Nora was the notion that I couldn t uite get a feel for her age in terms of her lack ofwealth of experiencewhen I felt like I should be getting to know about her her as in the type of person she was her identity she sometimes came off younger and naive than I would expect at some points and older than her fifteen years at others This is okay at times since teenagers often walk that line between innocence and experience but other times I found myself frustrated with her lack of identity I wondered who would Nora speak for as a character and what kind of reader Nora would speak to For me it is not a uestion of whether she has anything substantial to say she does just who would find her most relatable and engaging in terms of age group experience etc Mama on the other hand was largely a blank character often absent If Nora could have made it to Houston without her somehow I think the author almost would have preferred it because Mama had almost no voice no character noanything Blank weak voiceless helpless I found myself perplexed by this choiceThankfully characters like Flora Keisha the extended restaurant family and Mr Mann anchor the book in realism Moreover Restrepo s commitment to the neighborhoods of Houston which I got to explore on her websiteCheck This Out It s Totally Worth It also give this book its sense of realism Finally let me mention that I received this book from a Goodreads Author after winning a Goodreads Giveaway and I could not have been excited about it
