I loved the book and the way Esmeralda writes. Her life is an inspiration to all of us, especially young people. I hope many young people read it and realize how much they have in the USA and that Esmeralda, in spite of her difficult childhood, was able to become the successful woman she became. In addition, I was transported to my childchood where some of my experiences were similar to hers. I immediately bought another book and will continue reading them all.

It took me 7 months to read this book, given my fluency in spanish, or a lack thereof. But I've finished it learning a lot more about the language and Puerto Rican culture. Is it good compared to other books written in spanish? I don't know, this is only the 2nd spanish novel I've read. The first was La Casa en Mango Street. I liked this one better than La Casa en Mango Street because it exposed me to so much that I hadn't been exposed to before, so I give it 5 stars.

Estupendo relato de la autora, se puede experimentar realmente la vida de niña a través de sus ojos y palabras. Gran libro que me permitió conocer mejor la idiosincrasia puertorriqueña.
Muy recomendable.

Excellent book. As you read it transport you to Puerto Rico in the late 1898 to 1899. You could feel that you have lived that time. Can't wait to read the other books by this writter.

No sólo está bien escrito y es muy entretenido; la honestidad y la humildad de la escritora me sorprendió inmensamente. Aunque no es una joya literaria, pocos libros te dan una visión cultural tan completa.
