How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents


Quickie recap: The Garcia girls immigrate to the U.S. with their parents, and the family struggles to adapt to a new country without losing their culture or their values. This is both easier and more difficult than it seems.
Quickie review: Interesting, written in a backwards outside-the-box kind of way, a nice book to get lost in for a while.
Quickie recommendation: Sweetly satisfying.
p.s. Thank you to Molly and Genevieve for turning me on to the Garcia Girls.
