The Tequila Worm
The Tequila Worm | Viola Canales
2 posts | 1 read | 7 to read
Sofia comes from a family of storytellers. Here are her tales of growing up in the barrio in McAllen, Texas, full of the magic and mystery of family traditions: making Easter cascarones, celebrating el Dia de los Muertos, preparing for quinceaera, rejoicing in the Christmas nacimiento, and curing homesickness by eating the tequila worm. When Sofia is singled out to receive a scholarship to boarding school, she longs to explore life beyond the barrio, even though it means leaving her family to navigate a strange world of rich, privileged kids. Its a different mundo, but one where Sofias traditions take on new meaning and illuminate her path. From the Hardcover edition.
