From Barbara Sutton: Make Your Home Among Strangers, a first novel by Jennine Capo Crucet, is about a young girl who gets herself from the Cuban community in Hialeah to Rawlings College in upstate NY. The culture shock, her conflict with her home community and her family who have no idea why she wanted to go to college, let alone to the north, really interest me. We’ve had so many of our A Better Chance scholars face this dichotomy between home and school over the years. It was compelling for me to try to get in the inside of one of these young women’s head. It might not be for everyone, but I liked it a lot – especially the first 1/2 or so.
We heard an interview with Crucet on NPR. She actually went to Cornell.
