From a three-room apartment in Brooklyn, occupied by 10 family members, Esmeralda Santiago begins a journey that is both a triumphant struggle for identity and independence, and a mother's worst nightmare. Challenged by language barriers, cultural stereotypes, and the fiercely protective Mami, Santiago continues the rollicking ascent she began in When I Was Puerto Rican. By day, she perfects the role of Cleopatra at Performing Arts High School and interprets for the family at city welfare offices. At night, she accompanies her mother and sisters to Latin dance halls - but on such a strict leash that she has her first date at the age of 20. Undaunted, she makes up for lost time in a romantic apprenticeship at once hilarious and heartbreaking.

    " A Possibly the best in the series. SO interesting because it goes into how she becomes her own woman (2nd in the series) "

    " While a good second part of my favorite memoir and a portrayal of the Puerto Rican experience in NYC, I thought the translator lost some of the Jibaro/Boricua flavor in the language that was very much present in the first book and which made it heart warming to me. Still it is understandable why it would happen as Esmeralda in this book finds herself immersed in State Side/American culture where some of her island quirks begin to be replaced by her new life. "

    " I love Esmeralda Santiago's writing. This was a beautiful work. It follows When I Was Puerto Rican nicely. "
