As a child, Esmeralda Santiago moved from Puerto Rico to New York City. This is her second memoir, and though I haven't read the first one, I found this quite interesting. It tells mainly of her confusion as a teenager; is she Puerto Rican or is she American? And of course, the book tells about her life. I enjoyed this book; it was a great coming-of-age story as Santiago struggled to determine who she was.
Read Almost a Woman:
- if you like memoirs
- if you are interested in immigration
- if you are interested in Puerto Rican immigrants specifically
Very Good! I would recommend this book!
