Description: From a three room apartment in Brooklyn occupied by ten family members, Esmeralda Santiago begins a journey that is both a triumphant struggle for identity and independence and a mother's worst nightmare. Challenged by language barriers, cultural stereotypes, and the extremely protective Mami, Santiago continues the rollicking ascent she began in When I Was Puerto Rican. By day she perfects the role of Cleopatra at Performing Arts High School and interprets for the family at city welfare offices. At night she accompanies her mother and sister to Latin dance halls, but on such a tight leash that she has her first date at the age of twenty. Undaunted, she makes up for lost time in a romantic apprenticeship at once hilarious and heartbreaking.

With rambunctious humor and an unerring eye for detail, Santiago's story is both universal and personal: that of the quintessential immigrant coming of age and a mother/daughter struggle of heroic dimensions.
