    1. I wanted to give this book a three because the setting and subject matter were intriguing However, the book was ostensibly told from the first person but Castedo often used third person to provide the vivid descriptions I found myself skimming this book after a while However, I enjoyed the historical aspect, the snobbery among children, class differences and immigrants with a variet yof political causes This book had strong potential, but fell flat.


    2. Castedo does a great job in developing her protagonist,10 yr old Solita who is from the ghetto and finds herself transported to a luxurious hacienda of wealthy adults and spoiled children Her innocent view of her surroundings is both charming and funny This book was nominated for a National Book Award in 1990.


    3. A touching and funny award winning novel about a family of European refugees, vividly shows a world unknown to American readers the rich, the poor and the in between in Latin America in the 40s and 50s.
