Excellent book with deep themes.

A well written story about a child in difficult circumstances. Raises some issues of child neglect/abandonment and addiction which might be hard for some kids. Overall, the message is positive and you can really see the character grow. I really liked that it was a positive book about a Mexican-American child in difficult circumstances. It's my daughter's favorite book.

Here's what I think of Becoming Naomi Leon

Becoming Naomi Leon is a very good book. Basically it is about a girl who's Mom leaves her for seven years then comes back to claim her daughter but not her son. She doesn't want her son because he is handicapped. Parents need to watch out for Naomi's mother because she is an alcoholic and sometimes she gets very mean and abusive. She is trying to use the government to get her daughter for free babysitting. dd age 9
