Publisher Comments:

andlt;B andgt;In this timely tale of immigration, two cousins learn the importance of family and friendship.andlt;/Bandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Iandgt;A year of discoveries culminates in a performance full of surprises, as two girls find their own way to belong. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;/Iandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Mexico may be her parentsand#8217; home, but itand#8217;s certainly not Margieand#8217;s. She has finally convinced the other kids at school she is one-hundred percent Americanand#8212;just like them. But when her Mexican cousin Lupe visits, the image sheand#8217;s created for herself crumbles. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Things arenand#8217;t easy for Lupe, either. Mexico hadnand#8217;t felt like home since her father went North to find work. Lupeand#8217;s hope of seeing him in the United States comforts her some, but learning a new language in a new school is tough. Lupe, as much as Margie, is in need of a friend. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Little by little, the girlsand#8217; individual steps find the rhythm of one shared dance, and they learn what and#8220;homeand#8221; really means. In the tradition of My Name is Maria Isabeland#8212;and simultaneously published in English and in Spanishand#8212;Alma Flor Ada and her son Gabriel M. Zubizarreta offer an honest story of family, friendship, and the classic immigrant experience: becoming part of something new, while straying true to who you are.
