Who knows where Cuba is?  Alma Flor Ada takes us to Cuba and describes her memories as a little girl there.  You will feel like you are right there feeling everything she is.  As you read you will be able to see the photos of her family and friends which make it come to life even more.  We all have fun times in our lives and we also have tragedies happen.  Alma Flor Ada describes her Uncle's plane crash and I thought I was right there.  To see what Cuba is like and Alma's memories of her childhood you must read "Under the Royal Palms" by Alma Flor Ada.
