    " The Secret Story of Sonia Rodriguez is all too familiar, and should be not be a secret to anyone who has a Sonia sitting in their class. Told in a voice that grows stronger as the story unfolds, Sitomer has reminded all educators of the responsibility that comes with being an educator; to help all Sonias know that, on one hand, a secret story does not define them, and on the other hand, a secret story is possible if you truly believe, and realize that you don't have to do it alone. "

    " It's a very angry book -- the narrator's angry at her culture, her family, the way she's being treated and America -- but it's worth it to stick through to the end. Good portrayal of immigration and the issues surrounding children of immigrants. "

    " Good insight into the Hispanic culture. And yes, I agree with many of the stereotypes he portrays. I was glad to see that she broke out of the stereotype to become something other than a young mother. "
