Because I come from the same area as the author I was interested in seeing things we had in common in our upbringing in East Los Angeles. This book was very poetic, lyrical and well written from a child's perspective. It took me back to my own childhood. It made me see inside my own mirror that in some ways, I too had saved myself. I recommend this book to everyone. I have attempted to write a memoir because I wished to recall my memories, the author did that wonderfully well, in fact she climbed in and relived it to 'Save Herself.' I love the ending as she took her place in the community in which she felt she belonged. I plan to re-read the book. It was a gift.
