In a future classroom I would have students connect any times in their life where they may have been knocked down. I also would ask students how they managed to pull themselves up and who helped them along the way. I may also ask students how they think Esperanza was feeling when she was going through this hard time.

The author uses the 1920's a time period when many Mexican families are traveling across the United States border in hopes of finding a better life. The author uses characters with rich backgrounds as a means of describing what life would have been like for servants in California during this time. The main character, Esperanza life turns upside down after living a wealthy life in Mexico to becoming a servant in the United States.

Loved Certain Dark Things & enjoyed Mexican Gothic.

This wasn‘t for me. I received it in a horror subscription box. Wasn‘t horrific. A bit disappointing for a 1st book in a sub.

More of a romance. Character development via dialog dialog dialog.

The good: mentions of old movie studios & classic horror were fabulous! Premise, great! I enjoyed chunks of this book but as a whole I didn‘t feel it was a good example of horror.

Soft pick.

⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

I think this is a great book to expose children to explain the hardships of life. This story is told in the times of the Great Depression. This book helps students see the reality of the Great Depression and the hardships people went through during those times. This book can help connect history content to ELA. It also helps children learn that things may not always be the way they are now.

A Mexican-American author wrote this historical fiction piece of literature. It is told through the daughter of a wealthy Mexican father after her father is murdered. It causes Esperanza and her family to flee to California during the Great Depression. Some actual events inspired it. Esperanza has to learn the importance of love and sacrifice. Esperanza has to learn how to deal with hard labor, financial struggles, and more.
