Abandonando la tensión política de la República Dominicana de los explosivos años 70, las cuatro hermanas García acompañadas de sus padres se autoexilian en el Bronx Neoyorquino, arribando a un ambiente totalmente desconocido y en extremo liberal para sus conservadores padres.

La excelente narrativa de Julia Alvarez nos lleva de la mano por el recorrido de las dinámicas hermanas García, por caminos deliciosamente divertidos y también plagados de conflictos generacionales, donde las barreras del lenguaje y del prejuicio social se patentizan en el trayecto de unas rebeldes hermanas que han dejado atrás la vida privilegiada y conservadora en Santo Domingo y que harán todo lo posible para adaptarse a este nuevo país plagado de novedosas oportunidades. Alvarez nos deleita, narrando con una originalidad y ligereza sorprendente el cómo las García perdieron su acento, pero también ganaron una identidad que retrata al de muchas familias de inmigrantes que día a día luchan por tener un futuro en este gran país.

    " An enjoyable book that was recommended to me by my good friend Domenica. I found myself not engaging with the Garcia girls characters as I would have imagined but nonetheless their journey of self-understanding as well as establishing with it their cultural position made for an interesting read. All in though, I prefer the magically realistic twist Alleged brings to her tales of latina women. "

    " This book was ok. I thought it could've been better if it were written from the point of view from when they were younger to when they were older. Also the garcia girls were very similar in personality so it was hard to differentiate from while I was reading. The character development wasn't great. Overall I thought the book was alright. "
