For teachers, this collection complicates and expands our understanding, and gives us insight into the lives and stories of Dominican women, including the ones in our classrooms, as well as those of their mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and sisters. The book also makes new writers available to teachers, many of whom are published here for the first time in English. . . . The stories and narratives also provide wonderful models for young writers to begin telling the stories of their own lives. The book would be a great addition to any classroom library, as the real value of this collection will be realized when we make it available to our students. Erika Martinez created this book for the young woman she was, and for other young women like her, so that they could see themselves reflected in literature, partly so they could know they were not alone, but more importantly because she hoped to encourage them to speak in their own voices, to be inspired to also dare to write.--Meg Petersen "National Writing Project "
