It was a very good book, almost addictive. A lot of comments say it was slow at the beginning, and that is kind of true, but it just got better and better. The only annoying thing was that there was no Spanish glossary in the back. Since I don't really speak Spanish, I kept having to go to google translate. The houses, Las Casitas, sounded very cozy, and the whole family sounded so nice, and all the friendships were very sweet. The sad parts were very few, which was good. It was overall very entertaining.
