Dreaming in English is a sequel to Fitzgerald's previous book, Veil of Roses, the story of Tami's sister. Either book can stand alone, but it's nice to read both. I liked Dreaming in English. The story is told by Tami in first person, present tense. The reader knows what Tami is seeing and thinking at all times. Sometimes funny and sometimes sad, she paints a powerful picture of the reason so many people leave everything and everyone they know to come to this country. Tami is a wonderful character and I didn't want the book to end. Highly recommended.
