about

Pura Belpre Honor winner for The Revolution of Evelyn Serrano and one of America's most influential Hispanics-'Maria' on Sesame Street-delivers a beautifully wrought coming-of-age memoir.

Set in the 1950s in the Bronx, this is the story of a girl with a dream. Emmy award-winning actress and writer Sonia Manzano plunges us into the daily lives of a Latino family that is loving-and troubled. She is a child living amidst the squalor of a boisterous home that is filled with noisy relatives and neighbors. Each day she is glued to the TV screen that blots out the painful realities of her existence and also illuminates the possibilities that lie ahead. But-click!-when the TV goes off, Sonia is taken back to real-life-the cramped, colorful world of her neighborhood and an alcoholic father. This memoir paints a lasting portrait of a girl's resilience as she grows up to become an inspiration to millions.

Ambientada en la década de 1950 en el Bronx, esta es la historia de una niña con un sueño. Sonia Manzano, actriz ganadora del premio Emmy, nos sumerge en la vida cotidiana de una familia latina que es amorosa, pero que está llena de problemas.
