Brand New Memory, by Elias Miguel Munoz

Bright, imaginative Gina Domingo lives entirely inside the teenage world of southern California pop culture. Although Cuban-American by birth, Gina is less a multiculturalist than an omniculturalist, absorbing everything in her path. But Gina's life with her well-to-do, protective parents (who are still coming to grips with their uprooted past and life in exile) takes an unexpected turn when her paternal grandmother Estela arrives from Cuba for a visit.
Here is abuela, come to set the record straight, and now Gina's entire range of experience and memories begins to change and grow. As the outlandish Estela regales her movie-besotted granddaughter with tales of life on the island, Gina finds she has been given a precious inheritance: the freedom to create her own outlook on the past, her own brand new memories.
Gina tells her story in a voice so simpatica that we find ourselves charmed, unable to stop turning the pages. BRAND NEW MEMORY reaches across the generations to tell a family tale about reconciling past and present, a tale of reunion and forgiveness.
