Michelle / Multilingual speech and language therapist

I totally love this book! The story is intriguing, and the blank speech bubbles open the opportunity to embrace your home culture.

It made me cry. This is my story! I could not talk to my great grandma (who immigrated at 16 because of the violence of the Mexican Revolution) until I learned enough Spanish to talk with her alone.

I feel this story deeply. Thank you.

I love the fact that it is an interactive graphic novel! The story is gripping and teenagers will find it hard to put the book down!
