Young Rosario Ramirez, who has moved with her family from Mexico to Canada, refuses to speak English until she can pronounce the language perfectly, but when a migrant worker gets sick, she must interpret for him at the hospital.

Orca Book Publishers
Ten-year-old Rosario Ramirez and her family are political refugees from Mexico, trying to make a new life in Canada. After being teased at school, Rosario vows not to speak English again until she can speak with an accent that's one hundred percent Canadian. Since she and her parents plan to spend the whole summer working on BC fruit farms, she will be surrounded by Spanish speakers again. But when her family's closest friend Jose gets terribly sick, Rosario's plans start to unravel. Neither Jose nor Rosario's parents speak English well enough to get him the help he needs. Like it or not, Rosario must face her fears about letting her voice be heard.
Rosario and her parents come to Canada as political refugees from Mexico. Rosario hates her heavily-accented English, but she breaks the language barrier to save a migrant farm worker's life.
