Reviews

"[Wise Latinas] holds relevance for any young person setting out of their homes for the first time."--Ru Freeman, Huffington Post--Ru Freeman"Huffington Post" (06/20/2014)
"The abundance of high-quality material makes the book hard to put down."--Kirkus--Kirkus (01/20/2014)

"An extraordinary collection of testimonies. There is plenty of honesty and no pretension in the voices included in Wise Latinas. These essays elicit the gamut of emotions from the reader, from chuckles to gasps to tears. An excellent anthology."--Rigoberto González, author of Butterfly Boy: Memories of a Chicano Mariposa
