Find out by reading this book.
My Amazon review: While Frontera Street carries a strong message about crossing borders, both physical and self-imposed, the story that reveals the message is unbelievably full of extreme highs and lows. From the loss of husbands, lovers, jobs and businesses to the excitement of new love, full scholarships, babies and quinceaneras, it is impossible to get to know these characters and their true selves. Back stories and dirty laundry abound but do not amount to real insight into each characters heart. Both Dee, a white woman from the Westside, and Alma, a Mexican woman from the barrio, could easily be the same woman - struggling with backgrounds of rejection and loss, single parenthood and prejudice, but Barrientos has gone out of her way to make an important and single distinction between the two women - money. Dee's wealth is, ultimately, what keeps everyone happy and although the strength of the Frontera Street neighborhood bond comes through it is disappointing to watch Alma and her daughter leave the Street solely for the purpose of wealth and prestige. Barrientos' writing is stylish and, at times, fun. By far the most engaging part of the story is a flashback detailing the story of "The Miracle Muffin." Initially a short story of its own, the description of the milagro and its effect on family, community, and faith is the most in-depth, provocative and endearing section of the book. A good book club read, Frontera Street will provoke discussions about our own boundaries and the development of friendship, it also allows for interesting discussion on what it means to read about a character and feel as if you "know" them.
