"Chula" by Amanda Alcántara
"Chula" ($15) by Amanda Alcántara is a gorgeous collection of bilingual poems, short stories, and vignettes, centered around her experiences as a woman from the Dominican Republic and what her life was like before and after she moved from her country to the United States. It's a deep self-exploration from Alcántara that spans from her early childhood until well into her very different life as an adult.
