    This book follows Veronica Roni Melendez as she struggles to recover from a car accident that left her life long lover dead What makes the novel beautiful is that it weaves Roni s coming out as a lesbian with her coming out, so to speak, as an author She undergoes a series of transformations throughout the course of the story from Roni to Ver nica, closeted lesbian to self identified public dyke, from grad student to author Moreover, what makes the novel so important is that it is consid This book follows Veronica Roni Melendez as she struggles to recover from a car accident that left her life long lover dead What makes the novel beautiful is that it weaves Roni s coming out as a lesbian with her coming out, so to speak, as an author She undergoes a series of transformations throughout the course of the story from Roni to Ver nica, closeted lesbian to self identified public dyke, from grad student to author Moreover, what makes the novel so important is that it is considered the first Chicana lesbian novel My only criticisms are 1 that the dialogue felt too artificial during the times when Roni would challenge stereotypes about lesbians during those moments, the novel readlike an essay, but these were few and always short, and 2 the Spanglish felt forced at times, but that may just be because my own bilingual experience is vastly different from Roni s Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and was so moved by Roni and the other characters De la Pe a created

    I really liked this book, but the dated quality was difficult to get over at times Although, not a big deal What put me off of this book was right at the end, when it was obvious the love interest was going to be the person who was racially the same as the main character That s okay though, I felt the era while I read the book Feminine identity, as well as racial identity was very important to those experiencing life at the time But I really liked Siena LOL xD All in all, a very good book.

    As a Chicana lesbian coming out novel it was way outside my normal reading Easily frustrated at the end of the book because it introduced a lot of Spanish dialogue that was not translated and not easy to infer the translation.

    The story helped to distract from the simplistic writing and expected, stereotypical Spanglish I m very rarely left completely satisfied with novels focusing on featuring Latin American culture, so maybe I m beingcritical than necessary, but it was still a decent book.

    I feel like a read an unlikely amount of lesbian Latina lit during college Is that possible that it s such a huge category Regardless, this is the one I remember most clearly Good one, I do recall.
