Now 20, Alejandra Alarcon writes her personal narrative through her once six-year old eyes. Combining both childhood wonder and adult-like responsibility, she describes the various ways that she took care of her mother and younger sister. After years of unchanging family-related stressors, Alarcon begins to challenge the idea of a “perfect” world, and does so by questioning herself, her family life, and her future in college.
