How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents
This is a great novel about the American dream and the struggles of a family assimilating into American culture from Dominican culture.  It is an interesting perspective into different gender roles since the novel is written from the different perspectives of the various characters.  Each chapter is written in the voice of a different character and from a different time period in the lives of the characters.  It is interesting to see how the roots of family conflict can cross cultural boundaries.
