This collection of stories written in English is the embodiment of all things Latino. Two of my stories were published in this book, "Grandma's Recipe and A Bridge to Freedom." I could connect to all of these stories because in each and everyone one of these pieces I was reminded of an aunt, uncle, brother, sister, or mother whom I grew up with. A must-read for anyone who was raised in a Latino community or family. ( )
