Summary
Bella always dreamed of being a lector, just like her Grandfather, who reads novels, political essays and union news to the workers in a cigar factory. However, circumstances force Bella to take a job at the cigar factory to help support her family instead of getting the education she needs to be a reader. Then, her Aunt Lola is arrested with other workers after a union meeting, and radios begin to replace the lectors in the factories, and Bella must find a way to save her family and her dreams
Summary
When factory workers clash with the cigar company owners, threatening the jobs of her grandfather and the other lectores--those who read to the Spanish-speaking workers--thirteen-year-old Bella looks to the radio to keep the tradition going
