֍  Among the Volcanoes, Omar S. Castaneda, (1991), 183 pp ---  [ages 10-12, reading grade 6 & up] [Living Mayan Culture]
Isabel lives in Santiago Atitlan Guatemala in the 1980s and dreams about being a teacher, but many things make it difficult including her Mom's illness, family responsibilities and community traditions. She is uncertain how she put the many pieces of her life together including a special friendship with Lucas.  I enjoyed reading her story.

The author was born in Guatemala and grew up in the US.  He comments " In my writings I investigate the individual's search for identity in a changing world.  My characters glimpse something other than what is sanctioned by their native culture, and at the same time, they value many of their society's traditions"
