Ten-year-old Margie has spent her entire life trying to fit in—to pass as an American—despite the fact that her parents were born in Mexico. Then, her Mexican cousin Lupe comes to live with them, and her plan goes awry. Margie begins to master Spanish, enjoys celebrating Navidad, and participates in a Cinco de Mayo folklorico dance at school. Ada, the author of many multicultural titles, including Tales Our Abuelitas Told: A Hispanic Folktale Collection , and Zubizarreta write knowingly of the difficulties of a life lived in two cultures.

Two cousins, one born in Texas and the other in Mexico, learn the importance of family and friendship. At home, she finds herself competing for attention as her parents welcome Lupe with Mexican foods and Spanish conversation.

For my dual immersion students, I like that the translation note can prompt thought about what is really important when it comes to translation — literal word for word or capturing the essence.
