This book delves into a well adjusted 13 year old. She is mature enough to deal with her dad leaving and her mom's depression. She goes to live with her retired grandmother in Guanajuato, Mexico. She meets lots of friends and neighbors and fits in quite wonderfully.

There are lots of adventures, like being a movie extra, making the newspaper in the US. realize how some employers try to rip off migrant-green card workers and a mystery/ghost story.

The writer nicely introduces vocabulary. I thought a very funny part was when she was finally brave enough to ask directions. The lady answers back in Spanish so rapidly, she can't understand. I've been there before.

It was a very heartwarming story.
