really liked it
Read in September, 2010

I liked this book. I don't speak or read spanish, but my husband does. He often read over my shoulder. The poems spoke of the issues that Hispanics face in America. There was one particular poem that I loved. It was about how the Hispanic people stayed in their side of the town. One day, these kids decided to be rebels and go to the other side of town. They got beat up and made each other promise to not tell anyone about what had happened. The poems also talk about two cultures mixing and how it is difficult to figure out who one is when one is a part of two cultures. I recommended this book to several teachers at my school.
