Great story for any age 12+

I really enjoyed reading this book. I am a Latina and I think that this book can show other cultures that latinos as not just in for taking their jobs, making things worse for them.

I'm working on my certification to teach and have spent the past four years in the classroom working with middle school students. This is a book I will certainly recommend to eighth graders of any culture to read. It was a wonderful window into a culture which would not readily be apparent by an outsider. Canales' story brought to life the characters and beauty of Hispanic culture in the United States.
