Description



About the Book



Esperanza Ortega lives in a beautiful home filled with servants and the promise of one day presiding over all of Rancho de las Rosas. But tragedy shatters that dream, forcing Esperanza and Mama to flee from Mexico to California and settle in a farm labor camp.



Book Synopsis



Esperanza Rising joins the Scholastic Gold line, which features award-winning and beloved novels. Includes exclusive bonus content!

Esperanza thought she'd always live a privileged life on her family's ranch in Mexico. She'd always have fancy dresses, a beautiful home filled with servants, and Mama, Papa, and Abuelita to care for her. But a sudden tragedy forces Esperanza and Mama to flee to California and settle in a Mexican farm labor camp. Esperanza isn't ready for the hard work, financial struggles brought on by the Great Depression, or lack of acceptance she now faces. When Mama gets sick and a strike for better working conditions threatens to uproot their new life, Esperanza must find a way to rise above her difficult circumstances-because Mama's life, and her own, depend on it.

A Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year

* Told in a lyrical, fairy tale-like style . . . Readers will be swept up. --Publishers Weekly, starred review

* This well-written novel belongs in all collections. -- School Library Journal, starred review

Ryan writes a moving story in clear, poetic language that children will sink into, and the book offers excellent opportunities for discussion and curriculum support. -- Booklist

Ryan's... style is engaging, her characters appealing, and her story is one that-though a deep-rooted part of the history of California, the Depression, and thus the nation-is little heard in children's fiction. It bears telling to a wider audience. -- Kirkus Reviews

Read this with my 5th grade daughter. The story is beautiful. It can definitely be appreciated if you have Mexican roots/had family who have immigrated. I would highly recommend. I think a kid reading this could take a lot from this book, seeing the growth of the main character.
