Mar 17, Julia rated it it was ok. In Spanish the major part of our curriculum this year was to read this book. All of the kids didn't want to read it, I didn't want to read it, even the teacher didn't want to read it! But, the district said we had to. In the end, I really didn't like this book that much. It was either too boring, or too over dramatic.
It didn't feel like an accurate description of how people crossed the border. I also hated the characters. Lupita was too optimistic, and Salvador too bitchy. I found myself very hap In Spanish the major part of our curriculum this year was to read this book.
I found myself very happy at the ending, and not because Lupita started to learn english. Overall, I would give this book 1 star, but because it didn't completely bore me to death, I give it 2 stars. May 13, Asher Escobar rated it did not like it. Lupita Manana, a book written by a white woman named Patricia Beatty. This book was published on March 21st This book was not a highly rated or recommended book for middle schoolers. Sadly, the book did not win any awards.
Although this book did have over 70 reviews and ratings.

Though it gave us an opportunity to talk about the current immigration situation, the book was so totally depressing. It's true her life is depressing, but I am sure there is a better picture of illegal immigrants out there.
I appreciated that it was a true story but the writing was unimpressive and uninspiring. Our main character is a girl named Lupita. The time were this book took place was somewhere between to The story begins in Mexico and ends all the way in the United States.
Her older brother is Salvador, a sixteen year old boy. Salvador character is portrayed as the oldest brother of Lupita, he may look as a good guy at the beginning but towards the end, everything flips. Lupita is the second oldest child, she is our main character. Although she is optimistic, this does not stop her from thinking tomorrow will be better. This story begins with Lupita discovering her father has been killed at sea.
Now Salvador and her must travel all the way to the United States to help their mother make more money to save their home. Salvador and Lupita go on a dangerous path where they almost risked getting taken back. They reach to Tijuana but we're close to being deported. Both of them arrive to their destination. Once their they struggle because they were sent to come to a rich aunt. Yet what they found was a disappointment.
Once their they had to help their aunt and drunken uncle get more money to pay for where they will be sleeping. Salvador got deported but Lupita escaped. My opinion on this book is bad. The book is good in story, but out of character shape.
I don't recommend this book by all means, because this book is an offensive way of saying us latinos are a bad example to young children. This puts us on a bad position. This is like calling us animals in a way. What type of immigrant would want to be deported? Even though Donald J. Trump has lost his mind, this doesn't mean we have lost ours.
From all the latinos and african americans they hate? The United States of America is the land of opportunity. Not the land of segregation, we should be free. We should not stop people from dreaming forward.
If the United States of America the land of opportunity, then why are we being separated from those whose ancestors were once immigrants. We weren't born here, we stole this country from the first Native Americans. We are somewhere we don't belong. Stolen land, from people who lived here thousands of years ago where taken away. So why when we come to a place we don't belong we get kicked out? Overall, my opinion of this book is horrible. Little do they know it would only affect them in even more dangerous levels.
This book is a good book. So, this book can be a good book. Depending on how one takes it, but if I were to recommend this book to anybody, it would be to an immigrant.
That immigrant can compare on how they struggled to get to the United States. They are the only ones who truly know how coming out as an immigrant can be difficult. I am only an eighth grader and I read this book as a seventh grader. To this day I still do not like the book nor do I want any of my younger brothers reading this book as an assignment.
I clearly do not like this book and I loved the author's hard work, but this seemed very offensive especially for me being a 13 year old honduran mixed guatemalan. I respect others opinions so please respect mines. Dec 24, Michelle rated it did not like it. This book sucks. It is very very very very boring. Lupita and her brother Salvador must cross the border to the US. Lupita is supposedly incredibly optimistic.
Really thought, she's and her brother Salvador are both just bipolar. Lots of Love, Michelle D. Nov 04, Eliza rated it liked it Shelves: I liked the descriptive language that was included, but I was a little disappointed in the Lupita character. She was a bit of a drag, and her optimism was a little forced. It got on my nerves for some reason.
I have yet to recommend it to anyone: Aug 25, 07TyraN rated it did not like it. I personally didnt like it at all it had to much drama in the book for me.
I didnt like the story line at all it was a little confusing for me to understand what was going on. Feb 05, Ryan Dasilva added it. Lupita Mannana is a nice book to read on your free time. It has a nice story and its not too long.
The book is about a Mexican family that just lost their dad while he was fishing. The mom needs the two kids Lupita and Salvador to go to America to get money for the family. This book is interesting and has a nice adventure story to it. I will say it is not my favorite but it is a good book.
The book does get straight to the point and hooks the reader. This book has a great story, not too long, and has a few Spanish phrases. This book contains great adventure that is very realistic. I truly recommend this book to everyone who wants a nice quick story. Sep 02, Andersreads rated it really liked it. An interesting book.

I chose it in part because it was just what we had available at school. I wanted stories with female MC's, POC, and with stories my students, many of whom are immigrants and children of immigrants, might relate to.

I'll certainly supplement it with current articles.
But in the future, if budgets allow, I'll find books by Mexican and Mexican American writers. Oct 20, Judy Ha rated it it was amazing. Lupita Manana by Patricia Beatty is about a girl named Lupita and her family. Her father dies during work out in the ocean and leaves his family struggling to pay back money lenders for his funeral. Lupita's mother explains to her and her older brother Salvador that they must go look for work across the border in the United States as illegal immigrants.
They head out on a long journey to their Aunt Consuelo's house that they believe is rich. Lupita is to dress as a boy so less problems will occ Lupita Manana by Patricia Beatty is about a girl named Lupita and her family. Lupita is to dress as a boy so less problems will occur. Lupita and Salvador travel a long journey on foot. The two gets robbed on the path to Tijuana and decides to not take the road as a path. They arrive at Tijuana and plans to cross the border. The first time they tried they almost got killed.
Luckily, Salvador had a friend that lived in Tijuana who helped him and Lupita cross the border successfully. Once in California, they set out again to find work and Aunt Consuelo. But a new problem rises. There are la migra everywhere. Will Lupita and Salvador get caught and deported back to Mexico? I recommend this book because it will always keep you hooked.
There are many turn of events that'll come when you least expect it. Many people can relate to this book. It talks about the hardships people go through just to find work to support their family especially if you're an illegal immigrant. It shows how employers uses the fact that the workers are immigrants to blackmail them into getting paid extremely low wages.
Lupita Manana also shows how brother and sister gets driven apart and family might not always be there. I enjoyed reading this book because it was interesting. It was based on the push and pull factors back in the 's where many people left Mexico in search of a better life and better pay in the United States. I was hooked because it unraveled many struggles many people didn't know of, that I didn't know of.
It gave me a new perspective on life and how difficult it is for many people in not just Mexico, but all around the world. I like the historical fiction book that Patricia Beatty writes very much. This book differs from the kind of books she usually writes. And it gives the normal American a different look at illegal immigration. The author says in the back that the story is based on real children. Although Mama works as a maid in a hotel, the family is desperately poor and when Lupita's father is lost at sea Mama must go to the moneylenders in order to support her 6 children.
It is decided that 13 year-old Lupita a I like the historical fiction book that Patricia Beatty writes very much. It is decided that 13 year-old Lupita and 15 year-old Salvatore will go to "rich" Aunt Consuelo in the United States, find jobs, and send money home to pay off the loans.
The children walk to Tijuana with Lupita dressed as a boy. The narration of their story as they try to cross the border is heartrending. As they make their way to Indio, California, walking 80 miles, they are fearful of being caught by Le Migras, the US immigration officers, who often raid businesses, restaurants, and social functions, sending illegal aliens back across the border. Of course, when they reach their aunt, she is not rich.
She is as poor as her sister, with as many children, and does not welcome two more. This is the story of two children whose goal is just to work and make enough money to send to their mother in Mexico and then someday to return home when the moneylenders have been repaid.

Go After their fathers death Lupita and Salvador Torres are left in charge of taking care of their younger sibligs, so they are somehow forced by their mother to com to the United States for a better living.
Going to find their aunt. When they had found her, Salvador and lupita where not welcomed at their aunts house but when started looking for a job they had to pay for rent and food n order for them to live with her. Working in the fields was not what they had in mind, getting payed less than they did at the hotel but as long as they had money to send to their mother it was alright. At the end Salvador ends up not the way anybody would like their kid to be like.
The stress of taking care of the family and working long hours has made salvador a "rebel" guy. While at a dance, immigrationcomes luckily Lupita is able to escape but Salvador isn't. One night Irela, Lupita's coisin comes to bed with her and starts teaching english to Lupita.
