As she travels with her mom, dad, and brother to their new home in the United States, a young girl named Isabel writes letters to her aunt back home in Mexico, who has been teaching Isabel how to read and write in English. Isabel experiences lots of new sights and sounds, some of them overwhelming, and - after collecting boxes from the birthday parties that her mother caters - she builds a quiet sanctuary where she can slip away to read and think. But by the time Isabel's own birthday comes around, her quiet place is the centre of joyful, boisterous activity. Don't miss this sensitively illustrated, "moving, memorable portrayal of one child's immigrant experience" (Booklist).
