Ten-year-old Rosario Ramirez and her family are political refugees from Mexico, trying to make a new life in Canada. After being teased at school, Rosario vows not to speak English again until she can speak with an accent that's one hundred percent Canadian. Since she and her parents plan to spend the whole summer working on BC fruit farms, she will be surrounded by Spanish speakers again. But when her family's closest friend Jose gets terribly sick, Rosario's plans start to unravel. Neither Jose nor Rosario's parents speak English well enough to get him the help he needs. Like it or not, Rosario must face her fears about letting her voice be heard.

Book Description:

Silence is not always golden.

From the Back Cover:

Cold fear twisted in my stomach. I couldn't argue now, not with Jose lying on the ground, shaking, while Mama and Marcos tried to hoist him up. But how could I talk to the patron? A man who yelled at his workers about any little thing would never listen to a kid, especially a kid whose English was sure to come out all wrong. It always did when I was nervous or upset. And yelling the names of vegetables in Spanish wasn't going to help me one bit this time. Ten-year-old Rosario Ramirez and her family are political refugees from Mexico, trying to make a new life in Canada. After being teased at school, Rosario vows not to speak English again until she can speak with an accent that's one hundred percent Canadian. But when her family's closest friend and fellow farm worker, Jose, gets sick on the job, Rosario's plan starts to fall apart. Neither of Rosario's parents speaks English well enough to get Jose the help he needs. Like it or not, Rosario must face her fears about letting her voice be heard.
