Pam Munoz Ryan, author of "Esperanza Rising," writes an emotional and raw story of a family in distress with "Becoming Naomi Leon." This book has many of the same themes and ideas as "Esperanza Rising" and would complement Munoz Ryan's other stories fabulously in an author study, in literature circles, book clubs, etc.
