What did you love best about The Secret Story of Sonia Rodriquez?
My 12th grade students and I read this book each year. Boys and girls alike relate to the characters and situations encountered in the text. They say, "This story is real! It sounds like my family!" I say, Alan Sitomer and Blanca Vasquez are fantastic and engagaing duo!
What about Blanca Vasquez’s performance did you like?
My students are predominately Latinos; Blanca sounds like she could be one of my students.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Absolutely! In fact, I did finish it in two sittings!
Any additional comments?
Your Young Adult Literature selections are invaluable to teachers like me. My policy is to not have students read a book that I haven't "read". I listen to the stories before I turn them into assignments for my students. For my students that struggle the most, I suggest that they purchase the Audible version so that they can keep pace with their peers. Audible and books are a Win! Win! for teachers and students!
This story is engrossing, funny, and sometimes tragic. The author has such a great style - you feel like you really know Sonia. Down to earth, entertaining, and unique.
