American Like Me: Reflections on Life Between Cultures
by America Ferrera
America Ferrera has always felt wholly American, and yet, her identity is inextricably linked to her parents‚Äô homeland and Honduran culture. Speaking Spanish at home, having Saturday-morning-salsa-dance-parties in the kitchen, and eating tamales alongside apple pie at Christmas never seemed at odds with her American identity.
Still, she yearned to see that identity reflected in the larger American narrative.
Now, in American Like Me, America invites thirty-one of her friends, peers, and heroes to share their stories about life between cultures.
