I'm not a big fan of fiction but occasionally something catches my eye and I buy with my fingers crossed. This book did not disappoint.
Leddy, a Mexican American girl with a promising future ends up a single mother of two kids-both being raised by her own mother while she works dead end jobs and and fails to launch her own life. Then her parents move back to Mexico and here the story really takes off. The characters were well-developed and real. The story tackles the real life issues facing undocumented immigrants and first generation Americans. The plot is thick with twists and turns and does not have the predictability and implausibility in so much fiction I have read. Narration is done in the woman's voice and her older son which keeps things interesting.

This book is very down to earth and makes you feel as though possibilities are available no matted your decisions. I identified with all the characters even when I did not intend to. I felt a sense of humility when listening to this book. This book is well written and carefully thought out . If you feel that you are alone or feel that your failed decisions dictate your future ,after reading this book you will understand opportunity is the result, of those decisions, IF you choose to look at life in a way that differs from self.(you).
