Enchanted Air: Two Cultures, Two Wings / Margarita Engle

Margarita Engle provides us with an intimate portrait of her childhood struggle to find her place in the world. Torn between her homeland of Cuba and American home in Los Angeles, Margarita’s loneliness is used as a catalyst for her drawings and writings. This enchanting story tells of a love for her family and beloved island of Cuba, and the fear and anguish she feels at being cut off from them during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Reflective of one child’s immigrant experience, this Newbery award winning collection of poems written in entirely in poetic verse tells the a enchanting story of a young girl and the two worlds that helped to make her into who she is today.
