were Wing Press, from San Antonio, Texas winner of Best Poetry Book in Spanish for Marjorie Agosin's "Among the Angels of Memory" (2006) and Cholita Prints and Publishing Co., from Santa Fe, New Mexico, winner of Best Young adult Fiction for Adalucia Quan's "La chica de Mendiburo" ("The Girl from Mendiburo"; 2006).
The beauty and tenderness of the middle class Latin American childhood it evokes is so vivid that the reader envies the protagonist and wants to be there.
Marifer, a writer and lover of poetry, shares her fondness for the literary art through her daily descriptions of life. The girl's story unfolds in three segments: morning, afternoon, and evening. Mornings are calm and sunny, afternoons are filled with tensions, and evenings unfold with tales of pesadillas(nightmares) and conclude with a move to the United States. Recommended.
