DEFINITELY HISPANIC Essays on Growing Up Latino and Celebrating What Unites Us

by | Read by LeJuan James

Contemporary Culture • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

From Vine and Instagram fame, social media star LeJuan James narrates his memoir of growing up in a Hispanic household. Humorous and engaging, James provides a fun performance of his own stories. His delivery is animated and entertaining. Listeners will especially enjoy his stories about receiving "La Pela" from his mother (being cuffed with a flip-flop for misbehaving) and feeling the urge to dance whenever music is played. Sadly, the Spanish-language portions of the audiobook hinder listeners not fluent in rapidly spoken Spanish. Without translation, the listener misses key portions of James's tales, making this audiobook lose a large portion of its potential audience. Overall, this is a great listen for Spanish speakers.
