A beautifully written though tedious book about a young woman's coming of age in Texas and New Mexico. I admire the writing and wish I had the talent to emulate Chavez's words. The book was tedious because it had no plot. That is the only complaint I seem to have nowadays with literary writing. Some of it is good, with a steady handle on story, but some of it lacks the glue that would otherwise make it memorable.

From the descriptions I thought it would be quite humorous - it wasn't. There is a llot of Spanish interspersed throughout the book. I am comfortable with that, as I speak Spanish, but not all readers will appreciate it. All in all, I'd say it's an okay read.

Haunting short stories by and about an Hispanic/Chicana woman.

Denise Chavez presents us with a cluster of stories about a girl moving into an adult world. The stories are not exactly about “coming of age,” but steps along the way to adulthood as a young woman grasps larger, often uncomfortable realities. The narrator is present in all the stories, but the places and issues vary. In the title story, Rocio works in a hospital as a “menu girl,” collecting menu preferences from patients, who expose her to their anger at sickness and death. Another story focuses on her changing models for the woman she wants to grow up to be. All the stories portray life of ordinary women in Chicana neighborhoods, women seldom depicted in mainstream fiction. Her writing is an example of how, in the USA, more and more authors are being published who reveal the deep diversity of our society.
