Read from October 27 to November 09, 2013

Urrea is a wonderful writer, but, unfortunately, compared to the incomparable Hummingbird's Daughter (to which this is a sequel), the story here is just not as interesting, and the characters, even Teresita herself, just not as likable as she tries desperately, and mostly unsuccessfully, to accommodate herself to life in the US after her exile from Mexico.
