Letters to My Mother is about a young girl living in Cuba whose mother has died.  Now she is living with her aunt and grandmother who are mean to her, so she writes letters to her mother to discuss her feelings and mistreatments.  She also befriends a neighborhood woman and a white boy in school who also has problems at home.  She quickly sees that these two people are willing to stand up for her when no one else will.  She eventually finds out why her family has such a grudge against her and forgives them for it.  This story discusses death, life, forgiveness, and love.  It is a powerful story that no one will regret reading, but it is a little too short for a RAC book.
