The book I just finished was Under the Mesquite by Guadalupe Garcia McCall. I reccommend this book to anyone around their teenage years beacuase the story describes when Lupita, the main character, was a teenager. I love this book so much because it described how Lupita's family struggles to stay as a family due to their mother having cancer. I reccommend this book especially to people who have experienced crossing the border to America and to people who lost a loved one. Under the Mesquite won the Pura Belpre Award. If you decide to read this book and you love the author, McCall also wrote Summer of the Mariposas.

Carolina Martinez | 28 comments This book sounds really interesting but I have a question. Is this a real life story?

It's based on the author's struggle through her teenage years. She loved writing her emotions out in literature and so thats why this book was written.
