Boricua is a Puerto Rican term of endearment for other Puerto Ricans, and this anthology represents the sentiment well. This book definitely takes an independance view on the US versus PR.

As with most anthologies, some works will resonate with you more than others. This anthology is no different. This collection focuses on what it's like living as a Puerto Rican in the United States. I found these works rather interesting and somewhat sad. The works by Piri Thomas, Miguel Pinero, Jose Angel Figueroa, Magdalena Gomez, and Aurora Levins Morales are the strongest pieces in the anthology in my humble opinion. There are more pieces of poetry than short fiction, but I enjoyed reading this collection nonetheless.
