See details under ‘Description’.
Lila is an “invisible.” She prefers to live a quiet, unnoticed, drama-free life. She does her schoolwork, she helps out at home, and she never rocks the boat. One day, by chance, she stumbles upon the masked world of lucha libre, and as she increasingly steps away from her comfort zone, she discovers that she enjoys the action and excitement of the ring. But will her newfound confidence allow her to find her voice and stand up for herself…even when the mask comes off?
The low unique word count and high frequency factor (the number of times core structures are embedded in the text) make this an ideal read for beginning and intermediate Spanish students. Each page is loaded with cognates (words that are similar in English and Spanish), recycled vocabulary, and illustrations, which makes this read highly comprehensible. Enjoy the story! The more you enjoy it, the more you will acquire Spanish without even realizing it! Happy reading!
