This story is about a young girl who finds herself having to take on more responsibility when she finds out that her mother has cancer. The main character is Lupita and she tries to help out the family and especially her mom in any way. I really like the Lupitas mom a lot because she sounded kind and
caring even with the illness she had.
I could kind of relate to Lupita in like having to take on responsibility for siblings.
I did like the book because it related to real things and was very emotional. My favorite part was the ice cream truck breaking down and the kids getting all the ice they could get and taking it home.
I would recommend this book to people who like to read about realistic and true stories that are also found of reading poetry.
