Parrot in the Oven
Just another novel about the experience of poor Mexicans working in the fields, getting pregnant, and mugging somebody. All the stereotypes rolled into one. How about a story about a Hispanic kid who gets into Harvard and becomes a top flight lawyer? Would that be too boring? Do Hispanic kids in school always want to read about their race being poor and downtrodden? Does anybody really believe white kids will read this book and change their perspective on race relations? Or will it just solidify their beliefs?
great transaction. thank you.
Parrot in the Oven is a great novel for reading groups in the classroom. The classic book notes will be a big help.
GREAT BOOK..I'D RECOMMEND IT MORE FOR YOUNG ADULTS THOUGH...I ENJOYED IT BUT THINK I WOULD HAVE ENJOYED IT AND GOT MORE OUT OF IT AS A HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT.
