In her coming-of-age memoir, Hernández reflects on her struggle to make sense of the competing expectations of her family, her community, and her own personal desires. Tackling issues of race, class, feminism, and queer sexuality, Hernández examines how the experiences of her past informed her ability to create a new kind of life for herself, without having to abandon the people and the places that shaped her.
