I liked this book a LOT. It doesn't explain the things it shouldn't (e.g., why her parents aren't around, words like "sharecropping" and "homeless"), and it makes her situation come alive instead of seeming like a lesson.

The illustrations have a style that I have come to associate with Mexican and Central American childrens books, and that makes sense for this book, but I just didn't connect to them.

In retrospect, given how much I want this as part of my library, I am changing my rating.
