Teresa Cardenas (Author), David Unger (Adapter)
The narrator of Cartas a mi mamá is a young Afro-Cuban girl who, upon the death of her mother, is forced to live with her aunt and cousins who tease and taunt her about her dark skin color. To keep her mother’s memory alive, and to remember that she was once deeply loved for who she is, she writes letters telling "Mami" what she is feeling.
