              The Spanish translation of this beautifully written, thought provoking (School Library Journal, starred review) novel in verse by Young People's Poet Laureate Margarita Engle, which tells the story of Antonio Chuffat, a young man of African, Chinese, and Cuban descent who becomes... a champion for civil rights. Asia, Africa, Europe--Antonio Chuffat's ancestors clashed and blended on the beautiful island of Cuba. The country is fighting for freedom from Spain. Enslaved Africans and near-enslaved Chinese indentured servants are forced to work long, backbreaking hours in the fields. So Antonio feels lucky to have found a good job as a messenger, where his richly blended cultural background is an asset. Through his work he meets Wing, a young Chinese fruit seller who barely escaped the anti-Asian riots in San Francisco, and his sister Fan, a talented singer. With injustice all around them, the three friends are determined to prove that violence is not the only way to gain liberty. Asia, frica, Europa: los ancestros de Antonio chocaron y se mezclaron en la hermosa isla de Cuba. El pa s lucha por independizarse de Espa a. Los esclavos africanos y los chinos bajo servidumbre por endeudamiento son forzados a trabajar largas horas, rompi ndose el lomo en los campos de cultivo. Por eso Antonio se siente afortunado de haber conseguido trabajo como mensajero, haciendo que su rica mezcla cultural sea una ventaja. A traves de su trabajo conoce a Wing, un joven chino vendedor de frutas que escap a duras penas de las revueltas contra los asi ticos en California, y su hermana Fan, una talentosa cantante. Con la injusticia rode ndolos por todas partes, los tres amigos han decidido que en estos tiempos de rebeli n violenta y esclavitud, las armas no han de ser el nico modo de ganar la libertad. Perturbadora, a la vez que hermosa, esta es la historia de un muchacho que se convirti en campe n de los derechos civiles de quienes no pod an hablar por s mismos.

              Now available in Spanish! In this powerful companion to her award-winning memoir Enchanted Air, Newbery Honor-winning author Margarita Engle recounts her teenage years during the turbulent 1960s. Margarita Engle's childhood straddled two worlds: the lush, welcoming island of Cuba... and the lonely, dream-soaked reality of Los Angeles. But the revolution has transformed Cuba into a mystery of impossibility, no longer reachable in real life. Margarita longs to travel the world, yet before she can become independent, she'll have to start high school. Then the shock waves of war reach America, rippling Margarita's plans in their wake. Cast into uncertainty, she must grapple with the philosophies of peace, civil rights, freedom of expression, and environmental protection. Despite overwhelming circumstances, she finds solace and empowerment through her education. Amid the challenges of adolescence and a world steeped in conflict, Margarita finds hope beyond the struggle, and love in the most unexpected places.
