 Donna Miscolta’s Living Color: Angie Rubio Stories

 

Me: First of all, what’s Living Color: Angie Rubio Stories about?

Also Me:  A Mexican American girl learns life lessons in and out of the classroom about race and power as she progresses from kindergarten through high school against the events that play on the evening news – the Kennedy-Nixon election, the Cuban Missile crisis, JFK’s assassination, the Beatles invasion, and the Women’s Liberation Movement.

Me: What do you like best about the cover?
