After reading Lucky Broken Girl, this is what Angela had to say...

"Lucky Broken Girl follows the life of Ruthie Mizrahi, the childhood image of Ruth Behar, who is a Cuban immigrant in the 1960’s. Ruthie is adjusting to life in New York City swiftly from her new language to hopscotch. Everything is running smoothly until a car accident shatters her right leg and her American dream. Stuck in a body cast, Ruthie learns to observe the world from a new angle and discovers that even though your physical world may be broken, you can accomplish much mentally and inside you. When her body heals and she sheds her body cast, she discovers that a new Ruthie is born. Behar incorporates a feeling of empathy as she writes about her life-changing childhood.  Using the help of Spanish, she helps readers understand the trials and tribulations of learning a new language and how the life of a Cuban immigrant is like. Behar makes her characters come to life using realistic dialogue and actions even the events are unbelievable. Readers can learn a valuable lesson from this story: that your only limitations are in your mind. I would recommend this book to my friends because there’s a little bit of Ruthie in all of us. We all have to overcome challenges, doubt ourselves, and learn to conquer fears. It is very inspirational and offers perspective. For example before the accident, Ruthie did not want to be the remedial class at school but after, was even willing to go back to the remedial class if she could just walk again."
