Published simultaneously in Spanish and English, Nacer Bailando (Dancing Home) tells the story of two girls struggling with cultural transition. Mexican-born Lupe has come north to live with the family of her cousin Margie, but even the presence of her friend can only somewhat ease her problems with learning a new language and fitting in at school. Margie too is facing difficulties. She has worked hard to convince her classmates and herself that she is one hundred percent American, but Lupe's arrival brings a crisis of identity. Ultimately cathartic, this novel brings home a message about what "home" really means.
