Three narrators portray the viewpoints of a family of uncommon women who are leading full, magical lives. Author Elizabeth Acevedo narrates the majority of the novel; her poignant turns of phrase and delivery in both English and Spanish provide a musical listening experience. She takes a more neutral stance when expressing the words of Ona, who is interviewing her aunties for her anthropological research. Sixta Morel portrays the four sisters' passions and gifts, ranging from rhythmic Matilde's dancing to Flor's uncanny ability to sense impending death. Danyeli Rodriguez del Orbe is memorable in her portrait of youthful Yadi. Acevedo's first book for adults will likely land solidly with her intended audience.
