The author says that Hall's mother grew up in Mexico, while her father was born and raised in Spain. Hall discusses the differences between the Latin cultures and American culture. She mentions various English books required for reading in Spain such as "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" by Mark Twain and "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea," by Jules Verne.
