Esperanza Rising|Pam Muñoz Ryan


Esperanza Ortega has fancy dresses, a beautiful home filled with servants, and the promise of one day rising to her mother's position presiding over all of Rancho de las Rosas. But tragedy shatters that dream, forcing Esperanza and Mama to flee from Mexico to Califonia and settle in a farm labor camp. There, Esperanza must confront the challenges that are accepted by her own people.
