Reviews

"Mora's voice is a welcomed addition to the growing chorus of Latina writers . . . should reward anyone who appreciates the interesting, well-written essays."
." . . this collection could be useful for educators and serve as a source of encouragement to others who, like the author, consider themselves 'in the middle.' Recommended for multicultural collections."
"These uplifting, mainly feminist essays will long be used to represent and understand the concerns of Latinas and will be known as a sign that the Southwest has reached the Midwest--the Heartland--"Nepantla.""
