Bilingual English/Spanish. A picture book about eight-year-old Soledad, a latchkey child whose friends come up with an imaginative solution to make Soledad feel less lonely when she gets home from school.

Eight-year-old Soledad dreads coming home to her lonely house every day after school. She invents an imaginary sister to keep her company at first, but a much better solution emerges from the imagination and curiosity of two good friends from the neighborhood.

Prize-winning poet and writer Rigoberto Gonz lez has crafted a delicate and touching tale about a latchkey child's loneliness and her friends' lively ingenuity in dealing with this all too common concern. Artist Rosa Ibarra's lovely, thoughtful illustrations bring a New York neighborhood to life in warm pastel tones.
