i've been meaning to read this book for awhile, and i finally picked it up from the library. While I enjoyed reading about these women and their stories, I was looking for something that dug a little deeper; this book casually mentioned 2 or 3 outside sources, but used the author's own Growing Up Latina Survey for the great bulk of its content. I was hoping for something less anecdotal I suppose.
This would be a good book for someone looking for a more personal take on this topic.
