For fans of Gary Soto and Matt de la Pea comes a tale of a contemporary Mexican-American family with a "spunky and imaginative heroine" ( Publishers Weekly ). The skirt is gone. Miata Ramirez is scared and upset. She brought her forklorico skirt to show off at school and left it on the bus. It's not just any skirt. This skirt belonged to Miata's mother when she was a child in Mexico. On Sunday, Miata and her dance group are going to dance forklorico. It's Friday afternoon. Miata doesn' t want her parents to know she's lost something again. Can she find a way to rescue the precious skirt in time? Includes an afterword from the author. " A light, engaging narrative that successfully combines information on Hispanic culture with familiar and recognizable childhood themes....A fine read-aloud and discussion starter, this story blends cultural differences with human similarities to create both interest and understanding."- SLJ " Light, easy reading . . . offering readers a cast and situations with which to identify, whatever their own ethnic origins."-- The Bulletin "Soto's light tale offers a pleasant blend of family ties, friendship and ethnic pride...[and Miata is] a spunky and imaginative heroine. "- Publishers Weekly From the Hardcover edition.
