How can home be a place you've never seen? So far, the move "home" from Chicago to Puerto Rico is not sitting right with Luz. Mami and Luz's new stepfather act as if they've arrived in the promised land, but the rundown section of San Juan where the family is living temporarily is hardly paradise. Luz misses her old life terribly. Only when she visits her grandfather Tata's farm, with the songs of little frogs called coqui everywhere, does Puerto Rico's magic touch her. Only when Luz hears Tata's kind and wise words does she begin to believe that everything might turn out all right. This coming-of-age story is about finding out who you really are and where you belong.
