    Good bye, Havana Hola, New York is about a young girl moving to New York after Fidel Castro came to power She is faced with a new language, school, food, and friends When she first moves to New York, her grandparents can t come with yet because of a policy Castro made She misses them a lot while trying to learn English and go to a new school I was dissatisfied how the author brought up the revolution I would have either spoke or less about it Students at this age don t know about what took place in Cuba and adults would have to explain to them I would have liked a simple explanation of what the revolution was in the book I did enjoy how the book had a lot of Spanish in it The way the...

    I didn t feel like this had a lot setting it apart from other stories of a child who moves to a new home which is drastically different weather, language, etc from their old home.I appreciate that it s set around the time of the Cuban Revolution something most Americans don t learn about until adulthood , and the narrator s somewhat detached statements about some people being happy about the regime change in Cuba and other s unhappy felt appropriate to me since the story isn t specifically about the Cuban Revolution though certainly the family leaves Cuba because of it, and I don t think it would have been inappropriate for the narrator to make of a stand and it s true that public reaction in Cuba varied , but the reviewer who commented that the vagueness about why exactly the family left Cuba after Fidel Castro came to power leav es the parent reader in that awkward place where the kid wants to know what the book is talking about, but a sufficient explanatio...
