Book Overview
Sofia comes from a family of storytellers. Here are her tales of growing up in the barrio, full of the magic and mystery of family traditions: making Easter cascarones , celebrating el Dia de los Muertos, preparing for quincea-era, rejoicing in the Christmas nacimiento , and curing homesickness by eating the tequila worm. When Sofia is singled out to receive a scholarship to an elite boarding school, she longs to explore life beyond the barrio, even though it means leaving her family to navigate a strange world of rich, privileged kids. It's a different mundo , but one where Sofia's traditions take on new meaning and illuminate her path.
