Book Description: 

Fourteen-year old Esperanza Ignacio could only think of a few words to sum up her life: crap, crap, crap!  She was born into a poor Latino family living in a small crummy apartment in the barrio side of town. Her story is filled with pain, strength, and too much loud bickering. It carries a voice enriched with barrio slang and sarcastic humor. Esperanza illustrates what persistent Latino youth can achieve when they get back up after a fall and keep on walking straight into college.
