A voice from the loudspeaker blared, "Will the family who brought the little redheaded white girl to the Puerto Rican Day parade please come to the bandstand to pick her up" I looked around. Wait a minute. I am at the bandstand. I am that lost girl! Michele Carlo, a redheaded, freckle-faced Puerto Rican raised in the Polish section of the Bronx, grew up as a permanent outsider. Too white for her proud, Spanish-speaking relatives and a mystery to her schoolmates, Michele braved a search for identity that was a long, rough and tumble ride . . . By turns heartbreaking and humorous, she recalls the family calamities, fumblings of first love, and all the people and events that shaped her. From her "playground battlefield" in the not-so-wholesome summer of '69 to many adrenaline-fueled, graffiti-filled afternoons and her emergence as an artist with a unique and alluring voice, Michele's story is an homage to a New York City gone by . . . and an iconically American, unforgettable portrait of growing up. "Warm and insightful . . . Michele's take on life as a Latina is the most original I have ever seen" -Linda Nieves Powell, author of Free Style "Michele's humor, heart-and every sweet and razor-sharp note of her writing-reach far beyond the edges of this island" -Dan Kennedy, author of Rock On "Poignant, funny, and authentic" -Janice Erlbaum, author of Girlbomb Michele Carlo is a writer, performer and comedic storyteller who has lived in four of the five boroughs of New York City and biographies,ethnic and national,hispanic and latino,memoirs Biographies, Citadel
