Lala Reyes' grandmother is descended from a family of renowned rebozo-, or shawl-makers. The striped (caramelo) is the most beautiful of all, and the one that makes its way, like the family history it has come to represent, into Lala's possession. The novel opens with the Reyes' annual car trip-a caravan overflowing with children, laughter, and quarrels-from Chicago to "the other side": Mexico City. It is there, each year, that Lala hears her family's stories, separating the truth from the "healthy lies" that have ricocheted from one generation to the next. We travel from the Mexico City that was the "Paris of the New World" to the music-filled streets of Chicago at the dawn of the Roaring Twenties-and finally, to Lala's own difficult adolescence in the not-quite-promised land of San Antonio, Texas. Caramelo is a vital, wise, romantic tale of homelands, sometimes real, sometimes imagined. Vivid, funny, intimate, historical, it is a brilliant work destined to become a classic: a major new novel from one of our country's most beloved storytellers.… (mere)

I understand that this is an important part of Chicana literature, which is why I kept reading even though it was completely boring. Being important just isn't enough, though - time to move on.

Wonderful sparkling storytelling, tracing the narrator's family through between Mexico City and Chicago. Lots of wild characters, family tension, Mexican history and flavor, plus some "portrait of the artist as a chiquita." ( )

This book is one of the many books that Sandra Cisneros has written, I really like it because it talks about a Mexican family immigrating from deep within Mexico City itself and how they travel and bounce around until they get to Chicago. I really like Sandr Cisneros books because she allows them to be influenced by herself, it is like a piece of her is in most of her novels. ( )

Things I liked: The storyline of Lala and her immigrant family living in Chicago, then San Antonio.
Some of the prose was beautiful. What I didn't like: Fragmented Vignettes. Did not flow. The Spanish made it feel interrupted because I had to either skip over parts or constantly look up a phrase. I did not like all the footnotes and also cameos of famous people that did not advance the story. I would not recommend this work of Cisneros to anyone who was not already a fan of her writing. ( )

I rarely re-read books but I have read this twice. The audio version is excellent because the author narrates it herself. She brings the story alive with her enthusiasm and lively voice. ( )
