Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A delightfully entertaining story of family and culture from acclaimed author Julia Alvarez.

Moving to Vermont after his parents split, Miguel has plenty to worry about! Tía Lola, his quirky, carismática, and maybe magical aunt makes his life even more unpredictable when she arrives from the Dominican Republic to help out his Mami. Like her stories for adults, Julia Alvarez’s first middle-grade book sparkles with magic as it illuminates a child’s experiences living in two cultures.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

Miguel embarks on a journey of self-discovery when Tfa Lola, his eccentric aunt from the Dominican Republic--who paints their house purple, drapes her lace mantilla across the windows, and puts meatballs in his lunch--comes to live with them after his Mami gets divorced. Reprint.

Synopsis:

Although ten-year-old Miguel is at first embarrassed by his colorful aunt, Tia Lola, when she comes to Vermont from the Dominican Republic to stay with his mother, his sister, and him after his parents' divorce, he learns to love her. Moving to Vermont after his parents split, Miguel has plenty to worry about. Tia Lola, his quirky, "carismatica, " and maybe magical aunt makes his life even more unpredictable when she arrives from the Dominican Republic to help out his Mami.
