Esperanza Rising joins the Scholastic Gold line, which features award-winning and beloved novels. Includes exclusive bonus content! Esperanza thought she'd always live a privileged life on her family's ranch in Mexico. She'd always have fancy dresses, a beautiful home filled with servants, and Mama, Papa, and Abuelita to care for her. But a sudden tragedy forces Esperanza and Mama to flee to California and settle in a Mexican farm labor camp. Esperanza isn't ready for the hard work, financial struggles brought on by the Great Depression, or lack of acceptance she now faces. When Mama gets sick and a strike for better working conditions threatens to uproot their new life, Esperanza must find a way to rise above her difficult circumstances-because Mama's life, and her own, depend on it.

About the Novel: Esperanza Rising tells the story of a young girl who's world gets turned upside-down, and must flee to America to start a new life. Esperanza Ortega grew up in luxury on her father's ranch in Mexico. She had servants, nice clothes and lavish parties. Her sheltered life comes crashing down when her father is killed by renegades while tending to a broken fence on his property. Their home is left to Esperanza and her mother, but the land is left to her father's stepbrothers. After their home is burned down, Esperanza, her mother and a few loyal servants flee to America to start better lives. Unfortunately for them, it's the Great Depression and their new lives won't be so great. Esperanza is immediately flung into poverty and struggles to adjust. When they make it to the States, Esperanza falls into a deep depression. When her mother becomes sick, Esperanza must grow up and learn to appreciate what she has. This riches-to-rags story shows that it's not what you possess that bring you happiness, but the people you share it with.

"There is a possibility for children's literature to exist without colonizing the child. There is a future for this genre that encourages the child to reclaim his or her agency by recognizing the child's capability to think critically and by producing literature that addresses the child as an equal to the adult. Pam Muñoz Ryan in Esperanza Rising (2000) does this, specifically, by recognizing the child's political potential. I demonstrate how Ryan makes an effort to open up a political dialogue with the child, inviting the child into the public sphere to speak up for his or her own political beliefs. Ryan recognizes the political capabilities of the child to understand the plight of undocumented Mexican immigrants in the United States. Rather than engaging with the child as an inferior to herself, Ryan address the child as a politician appealing to a voter. Ryan brings to the child the issue of undocumented Mexican immigration and persuades them to sympathize with the violence enacted on undocumented Mexican immigrants. In creating a narrative about an undocumented Mexican immigrant, Ryan uses the children's novel as a political platform to speak to the child as a future activist and voter. AND The Hate U Give (2017) acts as a guidebook for non-black youth wanting to get involved with the Black Lives Matter movement. First, she educates the reader on how the myth of black criminality influences the criminal justice system and allows officers to use excessive force on black folks while then acquitting these officers despite their actions. Second, Thomas informs the reader of the issues of generational trauma and code-switching, discussing the intricacies of black life in the United States. Third, Thomas teaches the reader how to access political agency as young adults to advocate for black lives. Thomas shows the young non-black reader how they can support the Black Lives Matter movement without imposing their non-black privilege onto black activists. In looking at how Thomas speaks to the young non-black reader, I argue that she utilizes the narrative to make accessible the current scholarship on the criminal justice system, on anti-black state violence, on black life in the United States, and on different forms of protesting. Thomas simplifies the language of scholarship and politics that discusses the disenfranchisement of black folks by making it readily available through the narrative of a young black woman. She uses the appeal of the young adult genre and first-person narration to make the discussion of police brutality accessible to all readers."--Abstract from author supplied metadata.
