Retelling: The book opened with the main character, Esperanza, eagerly anticipating her upcoming birthday. She lived on a plantation in Mexico with dresses and servants. Her childhood friend, Miguel, was the son of her Mother's servant and even though they loved one another, she knew they would never be together because of class differences. That changed when she was forced to move to the United States under the care of her former servants. Her father was killed and her uncle threatened to destroy everything if her mother did not marry him to further his political career. With hard work and determination, she grew to overcome her own prejudices, and keep her family together. She learned to find riches in friendships rather than wealth.… (mere)

Middle grade historical fiction based loosely on the immigration story of the grandmother of the author, Pam Muñoz Ryan.

After an unfortunate disaster in the family, well-off teenager Esperanza leaves her home in Mexico to become a migrant worker in California in the early 1930s, during the Great Depression and Dust Bowl.

Issues of worker's rights, unions, racism and classism are all discussed.
A beautiful story of perseverance and traditions is lovingly told.
