    The book, "The Secret of Sonia Rodriguez" by Alan Lawr

    The book, "The Secret of Sonia Rodriguez" by Alan Lawrence its about this girl that has to do everything at her house while her mom watches novelas. Sonia had been born in the US while her parents crossed the border illegally. The story of her life takes place in Los Angeles . She is the oldest and the only girl in her family. She has to do all the chores of the house because her mom is too lazy to do things; she will rather watch tv than help her daughter. Sonia does not feel supported by her parents. . Sonia's mother spends most of her time in bed, watching soap operas, and letting Sonia clean up after her brothers. Sonia's father works dutifully to support his family, but he knows that his daughter's dreams are bigger than making tamales for family get-togethers. When Sonia attempts to put school work before her familia, her mother decides that it's time for Sonia to visit her grandmother in Mexico to learn "the ways of the old world." While in Mexico, Sonia spends time with her wise grandmother and her cousin Maria who teach her that while family is important, the most important thing is to follow your heart. Sonia returns to the US determined to succeed in school, but the birth of her new twin siblings, inappropriate advances from her drunk uncle (Drunkle), Drunkle tries to rape Sonia, but since her mom thinks that family is before than anything else, they decide to leave thing as they were. I think that the theme of this book will be the struggles of a chicano while trying to pursue  many goals. I would recommend this book because many people that are immigrants could relate to Sonia or her whole family.
