About the Book

While growing up in México, Lucia Inocencio Granados is unconditionally loved by her grandmother, Mamá Juanita who tells her that she is the light of their destiny, born to change their lineage. All Lucia has to do is put herself in God’s hands. It is not until many years later, in the darkest moment of her life, that Lucia finally understands the depth of Mamá Juanita’s message.

When she is just eight years old, Lucia’s life changes forever when she boards a bus with her parents and siblings without any idea that she is leaving everything she knows behind to migrate illegally to Los Angeles. After spending a month in Tijuana, Lucia and her family finally cross the border and settle in a rough neighborhood in Los Angeles. As she sets down a new path as a determined first-generation Méxican-American, Lucia attempts to overcome social pressures and expectations, financial and personal challenges, and cultural stereotypes.

Brava is the inspirational story of a young Latina’s coming-of-age journey as she searches for success and true happiness after she migrates to the United States from México. But will she find a way to eventually realize the destiny her grandmother envisioned for her?
