"In this new edition of a book that's been a go-to guide for young Latinas for years, award-winning journalist Sandra Guzman tackles the real-world complications facing Latinas today. With warmth, humor, and wisdom, The New Latina's Bible explores a wide range of issues, touching on everything from family to dating to the workplace. Guzman offers helpful tips on improving self-esteem, and provides simple, easy-to-follow women's health advice. New chapters take on important topics like sexual abuse, domestic violence, interracial relationships, and LGBTQ issues. In The New Latina's Bible, Guzman shows other Latinas that they are not alone in the day-to-day dilemmas that they encounter, and that understanding these challenges can strengthen and empower them as women. A must-read for any Latina who faces the trials of living, loving, and dreaming in two worlds--the old world of their mam,̀ ta̕s, and abuelitas, and the new world in which they are immersed--this comprehensive book helps to bridge the gap between the dual realities that shape and define the nueva Latina.
