Annotation: When Maria Isable Salazar Lopez enters a new school, her teacher insists on calling her Mary. But Maria Isabel has been named after her Papa's mother and her beloved Puerto Rican grandmother. She just can't see herself as Mary. How can she find the courage to make her teacher understand? A Christopher Award-winning author tells the compelling story of a little girl's decision to stand up for her own identity.
