By Margarita Engle

Each time we fly back to our everyday lives, one of my two selves is left behind... 8.5"x6", 192 pages. Satisfaction Guaranteed. Margarita is a girl from two worlds. Her heart lies in Cuba, her mother's tropical island country, a place so lush with vibrant life that it seems like a fairy tale kingdom. But most of the time she lives in Los Angeles, lonely in the noisy city and dreaming of the summers when she can take a plane through the enchanted air to her beloved island. Words and images are her constant companions, friendly and comforting when the children at school are not. Then a revolution breaks out in Cuba. Margarita fears for her far-away family. When the hostility between Cuba and the United States erupts at the Bay of Pigs Invasion, Margarita's worlds collide in the worst way possible. How can the two countries she loves hate each other so much? And will she ever get to visit her beautiful island again? In her most personal and deeply moving work yet, Margarita Engle tells of growing up with the two cultures during a time of cold hostility between nations, an almost-war of words that shaped this sensitive young girl into an award-winning poet who enriches the world with words of a far more hopeful kind.. Signed by Author. 4th Printing. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
