Esperanza Rising

Esperanza Rising by Pam Muñoz Ryan

This book is about a girl who lost her father on her birthday because bandits attacked him while he was painting a fence. From then on life was hard because Esperanza's family had to sell their home and then go to the U.S. to get jobs. The book was very sad because their life was so hard. It doesn't seem right. I really felt bad. Read the book to find out more.


  1. I haven't read this book, but after reading your blog, I really want to. I think this is a great blog, and I hope you keep it up. I also hope you share this with your English class.
