A body across two hemispheres : a memoir in essays

Buitron, Victoria (author.).

Summary: "In this electrifying debut, Victoria Buitron comes of age between Ecuador and the United States as she explores her ancestry, learns two languages, and searches for a place she can call home. It portrays not only the immigrant experience, but the often-overlooked repatriate experience while interweaving facets of depression, family history, and self-love. With the utmost honesty, A Body Across Two Hemispheres encompasses the deep and complex layers of teenage life into adulthood--and the sacrifices made along the way for Victoria to become who she was meant to be all along."--
