It was beautiful and safe in Puerto Rico, and she did not want to leave Fernando. Someday they might even be married. Yet when her brother Carlos talked about New York, she felt a great longing to go there.Then suddenly the decision was made. The family moved to New York, and Felicidad soon learned that the city of her dreams could not exist for her- not the exciting jobs or the fine apartment houses or the new friends she hoped to make.

And when her younger brother got involved in a street gang, Felicidads heart became so filled with hatred. If only she were back with Fernando looking out over the purple hills! Youre not one of us, the people seemed to be saying. But despite all the hurts and ugliness, the friendship of a blonde American boy and his understanding aunt helped Felicidad grow up and face her decisions with courage.

Without oversimplifying the many difficult problems, Hila Colman shows what it means to be a Puerto Rican in New York, and Felicidad shines through her story as a sweet and sensitive heroine.
