Surprising Cecilia

(The second book in the Cecilia series)
A novel by

Surprising Cecilia is the second novel - following the success of Cecilia's Year - about a girl whose dreams carry her far beyond the small farm community she lives in. Both novels are set in the rich Hispanic culture of the Rio Grande Valley in the 1930s. Cecilia has worked hard so that she can go to high school. Now it's September - the school bus is bringing Cecilia to the new adventures, surprises, and responsibilities of growing up.

Susan Gonzales Abraham and Denise Gonzales Abraham are the daughters of Cecilia Gonzales Abraham, the hero of the Cecilia books. Cecilia's Year has been selected as the Best Book for Young Adults in 2004 by the Texas Institute of Letters.
