Great novel. Here's a review by a librarian. http://bookedup.posterous.com/when-tito-loved-clara-jon-michaud

I am not sure what made me like this book more the great writing or how similar my story is to the character, Clara...I think it's the latter. This story focused mainly on Clara, a immigrant from the Dominican Republic, who worked very diligently and overcame great odds to create the life she wanted for herself. While Clara was moving on, Tito, her mama's boy high school boyfriend, was marking time, missing Clara and dreaming of what could have been.

The book reminds me of how alike many immigrant families are in their need for family, preserving customs, and doing the best they know to do.
