Description
"A delightfully entertaining story of family and culture from acclaimed author Julia Alvarez."
Moving to Vermont after his parents split, Miguel has plenty to worry about Tia Lola, his quirky, "carismatica," and maybe magical aunt makes his life even more unpredictable when she arrives from the Dominican Republic to help out his Mami. Like her stories for adults, Julia Alvarez's first middle-grade book sparkles with magic as it illuminates a child's experiences living in two cultures.

Praise For How Tia Lola Came to (Visit) Stay

"Like all good stories, this one incorporates a lesson just subtle enough that readers will forget they’re being taught, but in the end will understand themselves, and others, a little better, regardless of the la lengua nativa - the mother tongue. Simple, bella, un regalo permanente: simple and beautiful, a gift that will stay.”–Kirkus Reviews
