When she leaves Puerto Rico to move to New York with her father Maria can t be an island girl any longer Now she has to figure out how to be a barrio girl 3 Call Me Marie bridges the gap between cultures and countries Puerto Rico where she was born and New York where she must learn to adapt culturally and socially to her new environment Maria s search for self identity rings clear throughout this novel as she deals with the transition of moving to a state that lacks the exotic and free air of her hometown She tries to disconnect herself from the American culture but in the end she realizes her Spanglish is her only way of communication with her new world Maria learns overtime that she can still overcome trials that she faces in America while keeping her roots in tact The book is creatively written in three forms letters poems and prose Although I find it intriguing I feel like it would be best taught in an ELL classroom I would recommend this book for 6 8th grade students because self identity is something that is constantly being uestioned as students change physically and mentally This book not only enlightens students about their own culture and how others adapt in the United States but also demonstrates how poetry can be used as an outlet of expression I found it to be similar to House on Mango Street by Cisneros and I would recommend this book to accompany this novel

Through poetry and poetic prose Ortiz Cofer tells the story of Maria a teenager transitioning from life in Puerto Rico to life in the barrio I enjoyed the rhythm and perspective of this book However the story and the mother and some of the other characters felt a little underdeveloped Language the strongest part of this book may also make it slightly inaccessible to the young adults who may most enjoy Maria s story I would recommend this book to high level middle school and high school readers with some reservations
