I have to say, this happy ending has been building since the first in the series and it is completely expected and somewhat banal, but it fits for the age group this is written for. ( )

This book was a great American tale with a bit of a multiculteral prospective since the family was based on a mexican family and included some of their traditions. Great book to read as a young person going through any sort of hardship with a large integrated family.

This book was about a young girl and the addition of Tia Delores after the death of her mother. Tia Delores came in and changed the family around teaching the young josefina and her sisters many of the things their mother would have taught them if she were alive. The problem arises when Tia Delores has felt she has done her job and is no longer needed and wants to return home. Josefina and her sisters try to purposely mess things up to show Tia that she is still needed as guidance for them. Papa and the girls are afraid to say anything to her about loving their Papa and eventually talk to her about her love for Papa and the girls trying to convince her to stay.

I would use this in my class as a discussion about family and someone in the family tha thas made an impact in their lives; someone they look up to or maybe someone who has been a rolemodel to them, possibly after a hurtful situation. ( )
