Betita is a master at telling stories about controversial topics in a way that anyone can understand and relate. I especially like the one about Rainbow Warriors, I still use that in my class every year. This book is very accessible for high school students and others. Some of the stories are a little repetitive, but still worthwhile

Great at placing historical events into context. Really enjoyed the history of Latinas/os in the US, which was covered briefly and to the point in this book.
