This is a wonderful story about having everything and then losing everything only to discover you have had everything you ever needed all along. Esperanza Rising tells about Esperanza's life as a migrant worker instead of the fancy houses and fancy dresses she was supposed to have. I highly reccommend this book to any body with children ages 10-14.

This is an enchanting tale of a girl's journey from wealth to poverty, from a Ranch in Mexico to a Camp in California, from a grl to a woman. It is beautifully written and is a wonderful snapshot of a culture many do not undersand.
