"A delightful novel...impossible to resist." —Barbara Kingsolver, Los Angeles Times Book Review

What People are Saying About This

Sandra Cisneros

Sandra Cisneros, author of The House on Mango Street and Woman Hollering Creek
Goddamn! Ana Castillo has gone and done what I always wanted to do—written a Chicana telenovela—a novel roaring down Interstate 25 at one hundred and fifteen miles an hour with an almanac of Chicanoismo—saint, martyr, T.V. mystics, home remedies, little miracles, Dichos, gossip, recipes—fluttering from the sender like a flag. Wacky, wild, y bien funny. Vale Gas girl!

A wonderfully written mystical story!

This book brings up issues of race, culture and religion all written in the fantasttic style of magical realism. The book grabs your attention and keeps it from the first sentence on. Sofi is fantastic and sounky and all her daughters so very different. I love the strong women in this novel and can relate to there imperfections and tragic journeys. It reads like a drunk girl telling a story to her friends. Great book.
