In this debut collection of coming-of-age stories, Canales intoduces the reader to the cultural traditions and activities of a border community: homage to the Virgin of Guadalupe, the celebration of the day of the Three Magi, a carousel of unique saints, and a flock of very special pink plastic flamingos. With the passage of time, the narrator discovers changes within herself and the community around her.
"Cultural traditions come alive in the stories..." "Each [story] offers a glimpse into this special culture where blended languages and lives seek their own place."
