This book is about the family of a Brazilian American kid growing up bilingual in the USA.
John, the protagonist, is a bilingual kid who grew up speaking both English and Portuguese. He talks about his family, the languages they speak, and also how he thinks society sees him and his Brazilian mom. John is proud to be bilingual because this way he can speak and interact with a lot more people, especially with his vovó (grandma) and vovô (grandpa) from Brazil. John thinks that growing up bilingual is a gift, and it fits right into our diverse and multicultural world.
