    2. Latina­ is a mix of short stories, excerpts, and essays on the life of the Chicana. The work clearly demonstrates the confusion of identity of Latinos in the U.S. The book perhaps shows a sort of pattern to the level different socioeconomic groups attempt to Americanize. The lowest, poverty stricken (usually new immigrant) and the upper/upper-middle classes both seem to grasp their Latino heritage and language. One from need, the other from ‘enlightenment’. Those who are in-between seem to [...]

I found this book really interesting because I liked that it was about real encounters that these woman found themselves in and it was a way in which i could connect with the stories.

However, among some of the dry writing, I found plenty of chapters that appealed to me in their amazing writing style. Definitely worth a read.

    6. Anthology of Latina authors - some poignant, some angry. I didn't really enjoy or appreciate the political "lectures," but I found several of the selections intriguing enough to make me want to read more from those authors.

    12. El lado femenino latino, del otro lado, dónde está el "sueño americano". Sin duda mi favorita es Juila Alvarez, con su fragmento de Snow.
