New Question for Book Giveaway #3

when-i-was-puerto-rican-cover.jpgSo it looks like the book giveaway contest question didn’t excite anyone.  We’ll have to go with something else because I want these great books to land in someone’s hands.  How about this:  when I was interviewing the women who participated in the book research, I asked them what books had made a positive difference in their development.  So that’s the new question.  What book (or books) made a positive difference in your development as you were coming of age.  Can’t wait to hear your thoughts!  Answers by end of day on Saturday get entered into the book giveaway contest.

What does it mean to be beautiful in America? For years, pop culture has insisted that beautiful women are tall, thin, and blonde. So what do you do if your mirror reflects olive skin, raven hair, and a short build? Hijas Americanas: Beauty, Body Image, and Growing Up Latina offers a provocative account of the struggles and triumphs of Latina forced to reconcile these conflicting realities. Rosie Molinary combines her own experience with the voices of hundreds of Latinas who grew up in the US navigating issues of gender, image, and sexuality. This empathetic ethnography exemplifies the ways in which our experiences are both profoundly individualistic and comfortingly universal.
