Summary
"Thirteen-year-old Estrella, who calls herself "Star" to gain acceptance from the non-Latino students at the Catholic school she attends, is torn between her family's cultural traditions and the exciting life she imagines exists in the homes of mainstream Americans. In trying to keep up with Sarah and Emilie, Estrella rejects Spanish and singing with her Latino church choir in favor of the after school choir. This causes trouble with her mami, who desperately wants Estrella to retain her Latino culture. To boost Estrella's confidence, Mami and Papi give Estrella the responsibility of choosing and purchasing the family gift to the baby Jesus to be presented at the Christmas service at church. When faced with this task, Estrella succumbs to peer pressure and spends all of the money on gifts for Sarah and Emilie, leaving nothing for El Niño. Only a miracle can save Estrella and her family from disgrace. The spirit of Estrella's grandmother--Abuela--guides her in her dreams to make the ultimate choice--to give del corazón--from her heart."--P. [4] of cover
