I wanted to read this to perhaps give me more insight into my Latina students, but it was aimed much more for 20- to 3--somethings. That said, the book was thoughtful and organized about stereotypes and difficulties that Latinas run into while participating in American culture, though not ground-breaking for me at this point -- I've seen so much of this already. I would recommend it for older Latinas who are searching for some personal narratives that might be similar to their own.
