This is a book that, had I read it as a child, I think that I would have found it delightful, imagination-inspiring, and just scary enough. As an adult, I found it a little disturbing.
In all honesty, the verdict is still out on this book. I'd be really interested to hear the perspective of Puerto Rican readers, and/or readers with more experience with Latinx stories. I wish my thoughts were more coherent - but I'm just really conflicted.
