Helena María Viramontes

Books by This Author

Under the Feet of Jesus

Age Level: 16-18

"Migrant Mexicans shackled to a life of itinerant farm labor form the backdrop for a summer in the life of young Estrella and her family. Seemingly a prescription for sorrow, in Viramontes' hands the canvas instead teems with color and builds toward hope for a liberating future — at least for Estrella." — Booklist
