Esperanza Rising
Esperanza Rising - Pam Muñoz Ryan
I greatly enjoyed this coming of age story. Esperanza faced much bigger struggles than most teenage girls do as they come of age, but the character did not take them in stride, she worked hard, struggled not to give up, and really matured though out the novel. My only complaint would be not getting to learn a little more about her relationship with Miguel. The author hints toward a romantic relationship from the get go but never delivers on where the two will end up in relation to one another. :(

Bless Me, Ultima
Bless Me, Ultima - Rudolfo Anaya
This novel is a short read and once you get started its hard to put it down making it a quick read if you will. I loved the authenticity in the cultural contexts and the development of the characters through out the novel.
