As soon as I finished the first book, I knew I wanted to read more from Julia Alvarez. I was ecstatic to find out about ¡Yo! and immediately got it to read.
Reading the different stories people shared about Yolanda not only immersed me in the book, but also allowed me to see deeper into who Yolanda truly was. This book shows her strengths and weaknesses, as well as the impact of her action on others that were her fault. I
This book is more suited for teens to young adults. There is some violence that may be too graphic for audiences younger than 13. I definitely recommend buying How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents and Yo! The books go hand in hand and should be read together.
This is the sequel to a book about a young woman who creates a best-selling book using people she knows in real life as characters.
