Read full description of the books:

Montserrat Fontes’ “First Communion” is narrated by Andrea, a woman reflecting on her life as a nine year old girl in a town just south of the Texas-Mexico border. The young Andrea lives a protected life—her father is a manager, her mother is American—and she grows up without any sense of the consequences of her actions. When she is finally exposed to the poverty outside her home, church and the club to which the local wealthy belong, it shocks her. She and her sad cousin Victor rob and finally expose the town prostitute with disastrous impact, not just for the woman but for her own family. Some of those consequences seem over-determined – an early murder lacks credibility, and the linkage to Victor’s adult fate seems forced rather than the intended shock. But Fontes’ portrait of the town’s impenetrable class differences, and the effects of Andrea’s blindness to them, gives “First Communion” weight and some power despite the implausibilities, leavened some by the appearance, late in the novel, of Andrea’s hilarious American grandmother.
