Vida by Patricia Engel
This collection of nine stories shows us the world from protagonist Sabina’s point of view. Although nothing particularly fantastic (or terrible) happens to Sabina, Engle fantastic writing helps us remember that wonderful stories can be spun from even the most mundane of childhood memories. From her foolhardy 20s, in Miami and New York to her adolescence in the suburbs, Engle keeps engaged in the life of this daughter of Colombian immigrants and rooting for her all the way.
