Look Both Ways in the Barrio Blanco by Judith Robbins Rose
The notion of mirror and window books has been one that we have been thinking about frequently as we choose books to share with our boys. Look Both Ways in the Barrio Blanco was a window book for us but may be a mirror book for many. Either way, this powerful read brings us into Jacinta’s world as the American-born daughter of illegal immigrants. Exploring themes of poverty, trust/distrust, and self-discovery, we highly recommend it for middle-grade readers.
