Rate this:
Bella always dreamed of being a lector, just like her Grandfather, who reads novels, political essays and union news to the workers in a cigar factory. However, circumstances force Bella to take a job at the cigar factory to help support her family instead of getting the education she needs to be a reader. Then, her Aunt Lola is arrested with other workers after a union meeting, and radios begin to replace the lectors in the factories, and Bella must find a way to save her family and her dreams.
Thirteen-year-old Bella tries to keep the tradition of lectors going in her Cuban American community when workers clash with the owners of the cigar factory, putting the jobs of lectors in jeopardy.
