This great multicultural selection from award-winning novelist Julia Alvarez will give your students an in depth look at a young girl’s coming-of-age under the dictatorship in her native Dominican Republic. Twelve-year-old Anita finds herself afraid to go to school or even speak freely in her own home for fear that household servants are reporting to the secret police. In her family’s struggle towards freedom, Anita must grow up quickly and follow her father’s wishes to “spread her wings and fly.”
