Journal Entry 1 by wingAnnimanniwing from Espoo, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Wednesday, May 16, 2012
From the back:

"It is 1961, and Puerto Rico is trapped in a tug-of-war between those who want to stay connected to the United States and those who are fighting for independence. For eleven-year-old Verdita Ortíz-Santiago, this is a battle fought much closer to home.

The Time It Snowed in Puerto Rico is a modern-day classic about the growing pains of adolescence, but it is much more than a simple story about getting older. It is about the struggle to break free from the people who have raised us, the difficulties of leaving behind one's homeland for places unknown, and the heart-wrenching choices we each face in order to become who we are meant to be."

Not exceptionally good, but still quite a charming coming-of-age story set in an interesting location. I found Verdita's story touching and identifiable.
