    2. Reviewed by Sandra LReview Marcela just found out she s half white because her mother had an affair with someone else, so now she doesn t know who she is Then a comment from her family sends her on a mission to prove that she is as much Latina as any of them So she begins this 10 step program really, they re a bunch of cliches for Mexicans i.e Spanish cooking, good dancers, etc If she was going to add a bunch of stereotypes, she might ve also included knowing Spanish and living in a barrio all t [...]


    3. Marcela Alvarez is stunned when she finds out that her dad is not her biological father Her family still treats her like one of their own but there is one small caveat her sisters figure that the reason Marcela is not as Mexican as the rest of them is because of her white father Determined to out Latina the rest of the family makes a list of all the things she feels the perfect Latina would do among them be Catholic, cook great Mexican food, visit Mexico, mentor a young Mexican girl and date on [...]


    4. I had high homes for Becoming Latina It was awesome to see a book that was about a Latin girl She s educated, from a good family, and has a great job The one thing she can t seem to get together is her love life She s commitment phobic and afraid of love, which seems like a disconnect given the rest of her situation Instead she buries herself in her work and family Her life is turned upside down when she learns of her mother s affair and the possiblity that she might be a product of that event H [...]


    5. When Marcela finds out that she may be a product of her mother s ill fated love affair with a Gringo she decides she must learn how to become Latina.With the help of her best friend she comes up with a list of 10 steps she must take in order to accomplish this.While the book moves along with likable characters there is a strange disconnect in the writing style when the author includes sex scenes Most of the book is written in a way that would appeal to pre teens and tweens while the sex scenes [...]


    6. I thought this book was very interesting and it was something unexpected I learned about different ways of analyzing and understanding situations It was a romance book mixed in with a bit of comedy Overall the book was realistic and tied in to everyday problems which are the books I like to read.


    7. A great summer read Interesting enough to give you food for thought, but light enough to enjoy in a day or two The character is very real, enabling you to identify with her plight and feel sympathetic to her What would you do if your identify was turned upside down I don t think anyone every really knows until it happens to them.


    8. Marcela finds out her father isn t the man who raised her, she is the product of her mother s affair with a white guy She wants to prove to her family that she is true to her Latin roots She makes a list of ten things she needs to do to become Latina Funny story with a good message at the end.Uncorrected gallery proof.


    9. This book was about many things life, future, family, love, and yourself It was written with emotion and described the emotions I was purely shocked at how emotional this was and I think this book made me realize something I don t know what, but what I do know is that it is helpful.


    10. Marcela is a single Latina, whose family is pushing her to be Latina and marry a nice Latino boy Fed up with the pressure, Marcela decides that she will make herself a program ten easy steps to follow to become Latina It is a funny, touching book.


    11. Silly, predictable and a fun read The gang stuff is way clich and the sex scenes are like soap operas it s an okay book to fall asleep to.


    12. Cute book, easy read After having a bombshell dropped on her about her parentage by a vindictive family member, Marcela goes on a quest to prove her Latin ness to her family and herself.






    13. Kind of trashy gets graphic with sex A quick read, the relationship and initial setup for premise not that convincing but how could I resist a heroine who I share a name with


    14. This book touched a lot of the issues my chicana friends have about identity and finding that one educated Mexican or American man that will fit in with la familia Loved it.
