In the Heights

Hudes, Quiara Alegría

The scent of a cafecito caliente hangs in the air just outside the 181st Street subway stop. The likeable, magnetic bodega owner Usnavi saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes for, imagines, and sings about a better life.

Rating: PG-13; for some language and suggestive references.|||adult
