Yo, Naomi León by Pam Munoz Ryan

Naomi Soledad Leon Outlaw has had a lot to contend with in her young life, her name for a start. Then, there are her clothes (sewn in polyester by Gram), her difficulty speaking up, and her status at school as "nobody special." But according to Gram, most problems can be overcome with positive thinking. And with Gram and her little brother, Owen, life at Avocado Acres Trailer Rancho in California is happy and peaceful...until their mother reappears after seven years, stirring up all sorts of questions and challenging Naomi to discover who she really is.

Spanish title: Yo, Naomi Leon

Naomi Soledad Leon Outlaw ha tenido que enfrentarse a mucho en su corta vida, empezando por su nombre. Tambien esta el problema de su ropa (hechas por su abuela en tela de poliester), su timidez y la fama que tiene en la escuela de no ser nadie especial. Pero segun su abuela, la mayoria de los problemas se solucionan con mentalidad positiva. Y su vida, junto a su abuela y su pequeno hermano, Owen, en el parque de casas moviles Avocado Acres, es tranquila y feliz... hasta que su mama aparece luego de siete anos, creando confusion y retando a Naomi a que averigue quien es.

Great book!! This author is the author of Esperanza Rising, one of my all time favorites. If anyone is wanting to read Esperenza Rising I would post the first chapter on Esperenza Rising res 1. I need 3 reviews to type the whole book. I probably wont do it bcause of the copyright laws. But I telling you it is great!! No wonder how it won a spanish award. This book is spanish in coulture. The accent is great in the book. So tha leads that the author is SPANISH. This is what the main quote of the book. RICHES TP RAGS. Thank you for reading!!

WE thought it had a lot of good things to talk about. We tried radishes and some thought they were good! We kept wanting to read more because it was soooooo good! We liked Naomi's lists and how she would be thinking. We thought the soap carving was really neat! Everyone loved the book and is our favorite book forever! Pam Munoz Ryan is the best author ever!
