At several points throughout Migrant Daughter, I found myself asking aloud, 'Was this book even edited?' The writing is unsophisticated to say the least. Choppy sentences, incoherrent recollections, unnecessary tangents, and childish descriptions fill the pages of this never-ending autobiography. The poor writing even makes this book somewhat uninteresting. If quality of writing matters at all to you, do not read this story. This book was required reading for a course in American autobiography and I questioned the professor's decision to include this.

The book Migrant Daughter is a book that I would recommend to anybody who likes to read biographies. This book is about a young women growing up. The young women ,whose name is Francisca, goes through many obstacles in her life. She describes the many things that went on in her life. I personally enjoyed the book because I like reading about books that take place in the early 1900's. Migrant Daughter also has pictures of when she was a little girl to a young lady. You will enjoy this book very much.
