From Publishers Weekly

"With a hint of magical realism, this robust novel set in 1930 captures a Mexican girl's fall from riches and her immigration to California," said PW in our Best Books citation. Ages 8-12. (June)

Awards and Praise for Esperanza Rising:

Pura Belpré Award Winner
Américas Award Honor Book
Jane Addams Children's Book Award Winner
Willa Cather Award Winner
Los Angeles Times Book Prize Finalist

ALA Top Ten Best Books for Young Adults
New York Public Library 100 Titles for Reading and Sharing
A Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year


* "Told in a lyrical, fairy tale-like style . . . Readers will be swept up." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "This well-written novel belongs in all collections." -- School Library Journal, starred review

"Ryan writes a moving story in clear, poetic language that children will sink into, and the book offers excellent opportunities for discussion and curriculum support." -- Booklist

"Ryan's... style is engaging, her characters appealing, and her story is one that-though a deep-rooted part of the history of California, the Depression, and thus the nation-is little heard in children's fiction. It bears telling to a wider audience." -- Kirkus Reviews
