Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A young girl’s discovery of her cultural heritage helps her lovingly cope with loss in this tender tale from acclaimed authors Alma Flor Ada and Gabriel Zubizarreta.

Amalia’s best friend Martha is moving away, and Amalia is feeling sad and angry. And yet, even when life seems unfair, the loving, wise words of Amalia’s abuelita have a way of making everything a little bit brighter. Amalia finds great comfort in times shared with her grandmother: cooking, listening to stories and music, learning, and looking through her treasured box of family cards.

     But when another loss racks Amalia’s life, nothing makes sense anymore. In her sorrow, will Amalia realize just how special she is, even when the ones she loves are no longer near?

     From leading voices in Hispanic literature, this thoughtful and touching depiction of one girl’s transition through loss and love is available in both English and Spanish.

Synopsis:

Martha, la mejor amiga de Amalia, va a mudarse muy lejos. Y Amalia se siente triste y enojada. Sin embargo, aunque la vida parece injusta, las sabias palabras cariand#241;osas de su abuelita la ayudan a sentirse un poco mejor. Amalia disfruta el tiempo que comparte con su abuela: cocinando, escuchando cuentos y mand#250;sica y aprendiendo de la familia mientras miran las tarjetas que la abuelita atesora en una caja de madera de olivo.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Pero cuando una nueva pand#233;rdida sacude la vida de Amalia, nada tiene ya sentido. and#191;Podrand#225; descubrir Amalia, a pesar del dolor, que especial es, aun si quienes ama ya no estand#225;n a su lado?
