"This biographical tribute to an icon of Latina music evokes the talent, independence, and inner drive of a woman who helped develop a music style present in today's popular culture." -- School Library Journal

"Chambers' enthusiasm for her subject is contagious, and the bright, uncluttered paintings of rounded, stylized figures in saturated, tropical hues echo the energy in the words.... An author's note, a discography, and a glossary of Spanish words used in the text are appended." -- Booklist
