This book is great. I'm 23 and enjoyed it. It's not just for kids, although I would definitely recommend they read it. There's a lot of history in it, as well as personal struggles. I also really loved the author's notes in the back of the book. This was really like her grandmother's life.

Esperanza Rising is one of the most amazing books I've ever read! I really like how the author writes it in a flowing way and includes Spanish words and easy English ones. It is easy to understand and visualize. This a book about a girl who lived like a princess in Mexico then big changes happen and she has to move to California was a worker. Are you ready to learn with Esperanza?
