Summary
In this memoir written in poems, Margarita Engle, the first Latina woman to receive a Newbery Honor, tells of growing up as a child of two cultures, Cuba and the United States, during the Cold War. When the hostility between Cuba and the United States erupts at the Bay of Pigs Invasion, Margarita’s worlds collide in the worst way possible. How can the two countries she loves hate each other so much? And will she ever get to visit her beautiful island again?
