Book Review & Summary:

“A funny, perceptive, and much-needed book telling a much-needed story.” —Celeste Ng, author of the New York Times bestseller Little Fires Everywhere “Written with humor and grace, with intimacy and empathy, Don’t Ask Me Where I’m From is the perfect coming of age novel for our time.” —Matt Mendez, author of Barely Missing Everything and Twitching Heart First-generation American LatinX Liliana Cruz does what it takes to fit in at her new nearly all-white school. But when family secrets spill out and racism at school ramps up, she must decide what she believes in and take a stand. Liliana Cruz is a hitting a wall—or rather, walls. There’s the wall her mom has put up ever since Liliana’s dad left—again. There’s the wall that delineates Liliana’s diverse inner-city Boston neighborhood from Westburg, the wealthy—and white—suburban high school she’s just been accepted into. And there’s the wall Liliana creates within herself, because to survive at Westburg, she can’t just lighten up, she has to whiten up. So what if she changes her name? So what if she changes the way she talks? So what if she’s seeing her neighborhood in a different way? But then light is shed on some hard truths: It isn’t that her father doesn’t want to come home—he can’t…and her whole family is in jeopardy. And when racial tensions at school reach a fever pitch, the walls that divide feel insurmountable. But a wall isn’t always a barrier. It can be a foundation for something better. And Liliana must choose: Use this foundation as a platform to speak her truth, or risk crumbling under its weight.

She lost her high-powered job, her family has returned to a town that brings only memories of heartache, and she's beset with uncertainty about what makes her worthy.

Book Summary:

Unemployment is, without doubt, one of the prevalent themes in more recent sociological debate. The sociological problems that develop because of unemployment are quite clear cut: it frequently causes dramatic changes in everyday habits and the habits of a lifetime; social reference points become easily disrupted; loss of identity, mental depression, inability to act or learn, and even physical illness are obvious symptoms among those affected. This extremely engaging book is based on the exploration phase of a long-term research programme dealing with the social problems generated by youth unemployment in Germany. The study has yielded what are undoubtedly surprising and important sociological results. The first chapter deals with the theoretical and methodological foundations of the study; the second chapter contains the empirical complex of the study, with an attempt at a careful differentiation of dominant 'patterns of coping' with the unemployment experience; finally, the author discusses some theoretical consequences of the study.
