I want to give it three stars I really do But the truth is I was disappointed It really is a disjointed narrative Maybe I need to re read it maybe I'd see something I missed in the first read I don't know why she switches from first to second person or why she even uses the second person at all I don't know why she jumps from the birth of Destiny to her writing home from college to a mother that is still block captain eighteen nineteen years later Really Nothing changed I don't know But there are times when the narrative flows nicely and the writing is beautiful poetic Some of the characters are bilingual and I know some people speak this way mixing English and Spanish together but somehow the way these characters speak just doesn't ring as true or real It feels forced or contrived I wish the block captain's letters to her unborn child were compelling For the most part this little novella feels sloppy I've seen some of Ms Martinez's poetry and I think it beautiful And I really enjoyed Mother Tongue So I'm disappointed to be disappointed; it's such a let down

Demetria Martínez Ø 6 Summary

Guadalupe Anaya a waitress is pregnant She is also the newly elected block captain of Sunflower Street in charge of raising awareness of safety in her southeast Albuuerue neighborhood Her campaign platform God helps those who help themselves While she waits for the baby Lupe writes letters to her unborn child whom she names Destiny It is Lupe’s dream that her daughter will be a writer pushing a pen instead of a broomIn this highly imagina. It wasn't hard to read but it also wasn't interesting The author's blatant agenda pushing just got and annoying because it was so forced Changing the narrative from 1st 3rd and yes even 2nd person was way too much and didn't seem necessary I also didn't understand the letters to Destiny thrown in at random moments they weren't even consistently at the end of every chapter There seemed to be no rhyme or reason for the letter placements or the narrative changes it just made it sloppy
