It is about two girls that have really different living conditions: one has great parents that can buy her everything and the other one sells herself to get money, to send it to Mexico where her mother is they live a completely different life and meet in a mall they only see each others' eye and think they're really alike I'd like to make a new end Oct 15, Lupe rated it liked it.
Interesting format. It's a flip book; English on one side, Spanish on the other side. This novella explores the similarities between two teens in Texas. One is a Mexican immigrant, the other is a suburban cheerleader. I wish it had been longer. Dec 04, Carlisa Cramer rated it it was amazing Shelves: english , stunning-ending , novella.
Rosa is a year-old illegal immigrant in Texas, working at night in the streets as a prostitute in order to send money home to her mother. Traci is a year-old bleached-blonde beauty queen in the same Texas city as Rosa, whose mother primes her everyday to be perfect and look perfect These girls' lives intersect for a brief moment to see how truly similar they are. This book was shockingly beautiful. It's in a really interesting format, where one side is in English and then you flip the book over and it's the same story but in Spanish. I kind of loved this. The point of the book was to see how, despite how different these two girls are, they are also kind of the same.

Like, you flip the book over and though it's different, it's the same book. Each side is 65 pages. I read it in less than an hour, but despite the length it makes an impact on you.
To realize that those people you may look down upon consciously or not are not all that different than you. Birth is circumstantial. Favorite Quote: "Half a second, a heartbeat—literally a heartbeat. One thump. Traci's eyes locked onto the girl's eyes, held, fixed, caught , and she knew everything.
Knew that the girl was a Mexican, was her age, was illegal, was selling her body and was totally, completely terrified. We, Traci thought. Just that at first, in the first instant. We are. We are the same. This book opens us to the life of Rosa, a year old undocumented immigrant girl that has turned to prostitution for survival, to send money to her mother in Mexico and to save money for her dreams of becoming a glamorous model. On the other side of the spectrum, there is Traci, a white year old girl who is equally entrenched in dreams surrounding beauty and glamor and whose mother lives through her by subjecting her daughter to beauty pageants and clothes and makeup that make Traci look old This book opens us to the life of Rosa, a year old undocumented immigrant girl that has turned to prostitution for survival, to send money to her mother in Mexico and to save money for her dreams of becoming a glamorous model.
On the other side of the spectrum, there is Traci, a white year old girl who is equally entrenched in dreams surrounding beauty and glamor and whose mother lives through her by subjecting her daughter to beauty pageants and clothes and makeup that make Traci look older. The author tries to depict Traci as being prostituted by her mother which I don't fully buy.
The two girls eventually cross paths and Traci comes to the realization that they are the same. I understand that the girls are very different in socioeconomic status and culture and that they are very much both vulnerable and victimize. Once this has been established, Traci goes on to live her life of luxuries and vanity while Rosa at the hands of a white society will likely endure deportation, humiliation and continued poverty. Traci, on the other hand because of her socioeconomic status has more options and no matter how much victimization she endures from her mother, she is obviously in a better situation than Rosa who is victimize by a white society which is clearly seen from the start and we continue to see through out the novel.
Rosa had little choice and unfortunately had to resort to prostitution. Traci has a choice to not be victimized. So I ask - are they really the same???? Sep 08, Debbie Henderson rated it it was ok. Rosa, a year-old illegal immigrant from Mexico, works as a prostitute to earn money to send back to her mother in Mexico.
Traci, a year-old upper middle class citizen, wants exactly what her mother pressures her to do: become the most popular girl in the school and make the cheerleading team as the best team member. When they meet in a shopping mall as Rosa is about to be apprehended by the police, Traci realizes they are just the same even if their circumstances could hardly be more different.
I love the concept of this book.
ISBN 13: 9788416363964
It is short pages--and written completely Spanish as well as completely in English. The concept it presents, that all people experience some universal feelings and desires despite differences in circumstance, is an important one for adolescents to explore. However, I would prefer to see the story continue instead of end abruptly as the two girls first glimpse each other. Perhaps Paulsen achieved his purpose within the 66 pages of text, but I think he could have built on it even more powerfully if he had made it a longer novel.
Nov 30, Kiri Case rated it liked it Shelves: engl Rosa is an illegal immigrant come to America to make money for her struggling family back home. She soon falls into the only position she can hold that will make her enough money: prostitution. She lives the life of a prostitute, but dreams of one day being a famous model.
Traci is a white, rich American whose entire life has been planned out by her controlling mother. Her latest preoccupation, or rather, her mother's, is getting on the cheerleading team at high school so she can be popular and marry well someday. While at first these two plots seem totally separate, they come together in the end in a surprising way. This book was very short and easy to read. Through this book, Paulsen comments on some very relevant issues for young adults, such as how far are humans willing to go to be excepted and successful.
For Rosa, she resorts to selling her body, and for Traci, she becomes a robot and loses her identity in her struggle to rise to the top. Is this restaurant good for dinner?
