520    "Quiara Alegría Hudes was the sharp-eyed girl on the 
       stairs while her family danced in her grandmother's tight 
       South Philly kitchen, "frizzy hair cut short, bangs teased
       into stiff clouds, sweat glistening in the summer fog, 
       pamper-butt babies weaving between legs." Quiara was awed 
       by her aunts and uncles and cousins, but haunted by the 
       secrets of the family and the unspoken stories of the 
       barrio -- even as she tried to find her own voice in the 
       sea of language around her, written and spoken, English 
       and Spanish, bodies and books, Western art and sacred 
       altars. Her family became her private pantheon, a 
       gathering of powerful orishas with tragic wounds and she 
       vowed to tell their stories--but first she'd have to get 
       off the stairs and join the dance; she'd have to find her 
       langauge. This is an inspired exploration of home, family,
       memory, and belonging, narrated by the obsessed girl who 
       fought to become an artist so she could capture the world 
       she loved in all its wild and delicate beauty"--|cProvided
