Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For Marand#237;a Isabel Salazar Land#243;pez, the hardest thing about being the new girl in school is that the teacher doesn't call her by her real name. "We already have two Marand#237;as in this class," says her teacher. "Why don't we call you Mary instead?" andlt;BRandgt;But Marand#237;a Isabel has been named for her Papand#225;'s mother and for Chabela, her beloved Puerto Rican grandmother. Can she find a way to make her teacher see that if she loses her name, she's lost the most important part of herself?

Synopsis:

Third grader Maria Isabel, born in Puerto Rico and now living in the U.S., wants badly to fit in at school; and the teacher's writing assignment "My Greatest Wish" gives her that opportunity.
