Esperanza Rising had a neat way of weaving the Mexican culture and language into the book with out making it seem like a boring factual book.You can easily tell how much thought was put into this book. One gift of Pam Ryan is how she can put the reader in the book. I truly felt like I were there. None the less I must add that this book was very depressing though. It got a bit fustrating at times because her life just got worse and worse and worse.Sometimes I would asked myself why am I choosing to read this if it's just going to get more sad? In a wierd sort of way it was captivating though. The book is about a child and how at first she is a rich and pampered little mexican girl.Then everything goes downhill from there. After that after that at the end of the book it gets slightly happier. This book is extremely thouching too. So to sum it all up if your the type of person who likes culture, but doesn't mind a very depressing story than this would be a good book for you.Was this review helpful?
