Sprinkled with magical realism and an artistic spirit, this award-winning historical fiction book tells the story of the people of Logan Heights and the world-famous Chicano Park.

ADDITIONAL PRAISE

"This recollective narrative tells of the activist efforts of Chicanxs/Mexicans finding a unified voice and standing up for the preservation of their heritage and right to self-determination. Children today take away an essential message — that it’s important to learn about the history of the land you reside on and become a part of the movement to protect it." [Social Justice Books]
