Once upon a time the central valley of California--- or, more accurately, the people of California's central valley--- stole my heart. So my bias is showing. Though time has sped by and camps like these no longer exist, this was a lifelike portrait. Ryan captures their work ethic, their generosity, their culture, their beauty, and, most importantly, their hope. I can only hope that those who read this book come to love them as well. ( )

I found this novel about a fictionalized version of the author's grandmother to be delightful. It offers a different angle on California history than I was taught in school and a different angle on the era than I got from Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath. Esperanza's evolution from her life of privilege in Mexico to being an agricultural worker in California is well written. The ending is hopeful but not unrealistically so. ( )

The time is during the Great Depression. Esperanza has become used to a life of privilege, filled with beautiful dresses, servants and a loving Mama, Papa and Abuelita always there to take care of her. But when tragedy strikes, Esperanza and her mother must flee their ranch in Mexico and settle in a camp for farm laborers in California. She now faces a life of hard work and financial hardship. Things get even more tough when her mother gets sick and the workers go on strike. Esperanza must find a way to rise above her struggles and face her challenges head on, because their lives depend on it.

I know I read Esperanza Rising when I was in middle school, but that was so long ago that when I picked this up a week ago, I remembered absolutely nothing about it. Not even a vague recollection of the story. Sometimes, a fleeting memory is a good thing, because it means you get to experience a book for the first time, again. So it was with this one.

This is such an impressive book. Pam Muñoz Ryan hits just the right notes to have a conversation about racism, sexism, xenophobia… without making the book inaccessible to younger readers. There’s little wonder why Esperanza Rising is taught in so many schools. It’s a well-written book, but it also broadens students’ minds. Books like this… books like this are why we need more Own Voices authors. A white author could not accurately recreate the immigration process and the struggle of living in migrant work camps. Muñoz Ryan is half Mexican, and it’s clear her Latinx heritage informs the storytelling.

But Esperanza Rising is more than just an issue story – though the realities of daily life do define the journey. Esperanza is coming into her own as well. After suffering from a deep personal tragedy early in the book, Esperanza and her mother flee to California. Here, they have to come to terms with their new socio-economic situation and trying to be accepted both in the community and in the country. Esperanza struggles to keep hope throughout the book… and like the very best of young reader stories, she has to find the strength from within.

The cast of characters surrounding our protagonist are also fantastic. We have the kind wisdom of Abulita. The passion and determination of the protestors to make sure they are treated well and given a fair wage for their work. Miguel is kind and steady. Isabelle is sweet and caring. They’re all wonderful and I enjoyed every one of them.

If I were to list just one fault with Esperanza Rising, I would say: it’s too short. I think the story is well told in the pages we have, but I do think the story could have been fleshed out even more. There are opportunities here for multiple POVs as well. That said, back in 2000 when this was first published, we had childrens books and adult books and no clearly defined in-between. In that way, Esperanza Rising falls into the “childrens” category. I’d say it is accessible and enjoyable for everyone, but given the intended audience, the simplicity of some things makes sense.

Despite all that, the world is well fleshed out, the characters come to life, and the story keeps the reader engrossed. I’d recommend this book all around. ( )

This novel is a great reflection of the various troubles and hardships brought to different families due to the Great Depression and how it drastically affected many lives. In Esperanza Rising, Esperanza had to flee from everything she knew at the Mexican ranch she lived at and was moved to California to a refugee camp for Mexican workers. She experienced a lot of struggles and poverty she previously was not familiar with and used her journey and struggles to grow. I would highly recommend this book to book adults and young adolescents alike. I feel like this story helps create empathy regarding the struggles of others, is based around a historical event (the Great Depression) and is just overall a good read. ( )
