display_description
Eagerly embracing their new American culture in Miami, the four Garcia women iron their hair, smoke cigarettes, date American men, forget their Spanish, and lose their accents, all in their journey toward adulthood In the 1960s, political tension forces the García family away from Santo Domingo and towards the Bronx, where the sisters adapt and thrive despite cultural differences, language barriers, and prejudice, but Mami and Papi are more traditional, and they have far more difficulty adjusting to their new country.
