"Esperanza Rising" by Pam Munoz Ryan

This award-winning gem from Pam Munoz Ryan will appeal to a wide range of readers with its heartwarming message of finding hope in the face of overwhelming obstacles. During the Great Depression, Esperanza and her mother are forced to flee their life of luxury in their beautiful Mexican home, Rancho de las Rosas, for a farm labor camp in California. Esperanza Rising (link to ) will grab ahold of both children and their parents with its rich depiction of people and places from the past. This tale of embracing the future, learning acceptance, and growing up will be one your tween will want to return to time and time again.
