Thirteen young Latinos and Latinas living in America are introduced in this book celebrating the rich diversity of the Latino and Latina experience in the United States. Free-verse fictional narratives from the perspective of each youth provide specific stories and circumstances for the reader to better understand the Latino people's quest for identity. Each profile is followed by nonfiction prose that further clarifies the character's background and history, touching upon important events in the history of the Latino American and Spanish people, such as the Spanish Civil War, immigration to the U.S., and the internment of Latinos with Japanese ancestry during World War II. Caldecott Medalist David Diaz's hand-cut illustrations are bold and striking, perfectly complementing the vibrant stories in the book.
