This autobiography of a child of migrant form workers is told in a series of reminiscent chapters that detail a day to day existence filled with poverty and disadvantage, cruelty and harshness, but also love and family. In the account, Trevino examines how she came to be what she is, lifting herself through determination and education, then questioning if the journey was really worth it. Positive, mostly, with casual cruelty and subjugation of women a part of her everyday life, plus be careful: one rather graphic part dealing with menstruation.
