Spanish edition of: Once I was you : adapted for young readers / by Maria Hinojosa. New York : Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, 2022. That book in turn is an abridged edition of: Once I was you : a memoir of love and hate in a torn America / Maria Hinojosa. New York : Atria Books, 2020.
"In her New York Times bestselling adult memoir, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Maria Hinojosa explored the history of immigration in the United States through the lens of her own life story. Now Hinojosa has written a completely new book for young readers that interweaves the untold narrative of her youth with her perspectives about how the next generation can shape today's America. In a warm, inviting voice that gives the feel of an older sister dispensing anecdotes and wisdom, Hinojosa takes readers from her birth in Mexico to her family's journey to Chicago and through her school years, full of adventures, friendships, questions, and class plays that inspired her love of performance. Throughout, she reveals nuggets of history and encourages young readers to ask tough questions about this country's attitudes toward immigration and about their own identities. Like Stamped, this book offers an essential perspective on America's complex history with race and nationality, and readers will want to return to it again and again"--
