Under the Mesquite

By My Springfield Mommy

It has been a very long time since I have read a poetry novel, luckily for me this book was very easy to read and understand. It would make a great first poetry novel for young readers. The story itself, is truly heartwarming and very realistic. You really pull for Lupita and her family and feel like you are going through her life with her.

I think Under the Mesquite would make a great book gift for adults and young women ages 12 and up.
