I enjoyed how Anzaldua paid homage to traditional healers and to the story of La Llorona. I thought the message of things not always being what they seem and help coming from the least expected places was especially lovely.

The illustrations are gorgeous. Jul 03, Edwin rated it really liked it I think This book does a great job of challenging the history of the Ghost Woman, of Latino folklore, and in dong so, also brings us through the change in expectations a young Latina has of herself.

The female relationships in the story are loving and respectful, and women of all different ages look out for each other in a lovely constellation of female alliances. The story is written in English with a Spanish translation on each page, as well as Spanish words peppered throughout the English text.

She knows lots of remedies. Prietita reaches out to la curandera for help and learns that the only curative herb is located in the depths of the perilous King Ranch. Although Prietita has been warned not to go into those woods alone, she is determined to find the herb that will cure her ailing mother. Prietita is strong-willed and exhibits full agency throughout the story.

Clad in blue jeans and sneakers, Prietita braves her fears and heads to the King Ranch. As the crux of the plot unfolds and the suspense builds, the reader comes to see what a guardian spirit the mysterious La Llorona can be.

With the help of La Llorona, Prietita overcomes the challenges of the King Ranch- a place which adult readers may interpret as a metaphor for patriarchal systems. She has been known for blurring the lines between social movements, and uniting those movements through various commonalities. Her definition of mestiza includes all marginalized peoples, united by the indistinct, medley composition of mestiza identity.
