Description
 
In gorgeous full-color photos, King takes us to a joyous, once-in-a-lifetime event -- the quinceanera. It is the celebration of a Latina’s 15th birthday, a coming-of-age ritual in which a community welcomes its newest adult member with a church service, a feast, & dancing. The tradition, which is rooted in Aztec & Mexican custom, is growing in popularity in the U.S. With a lavish dress, an honor court of friends, a big cake, & a night filled with music, the quinceanera is a fairy-tale moment. But it is a solemn event, too. At a special Mass before the party, the young woman reaffirms her faith & reflects on its importance in her adult life. The history, significance, & fun of the quinceanera are warmly recounted in this lovely book. Illustrations.
