Twelve-year-old Ana Rosa is a blossoming writer growing up in the Dominican Republic, a country where words are feared. Yet there is so much inspiration all around her -- watching her brother search for a future, learning to dance and to love, and finding out what it means to be part of a community -- that Ana Rosa must write it all down. As she struggles to find her own voice and a way to make it heard, Ana Rosa realizes the power of her words to transform the world around her -- and to transcend the most unthinkable of tragedies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tear Jerker So i read this back in elementary school and i have been trying to find it ever since. This was the first book where i cried while reading it. I must say this is an excellent book and just because the age category is meant for 10-12 i think this book can be read by anyone. The length of the book isnt long but thats what makes it sweet. I really recommend reading this book.
