The collection contains 15 essays that contemplate ethnicity, race, and culture and how these affected the authors' identities. The individual stories are narrated mostly by their authors, a choice that allows listeners to feel as though the authors are speaking directly to them. Topics include Ibi Zoboi's account of where Haitians fit into the pecking order of her Brooklyn neighborhood when she was growing up and Janel Martinez's descriptions of gifts passed down from her Honduran abuela. The authenticity and emotion in the narrators' voices will appeal even to those who may not understand the occasional Spanish word or phrase. Through this audiobook listeners will discover that the Latinx diaspora is much more diverse than they realized while at the same time showing them parallels to their own lives. E.J.F.
