One day papa went down to the fields and was late, Esperanza got worried so Miguel and Alfonso went out to look for papa. A couple minuets later they both came back with papa sadly dead. A couple days later the house was on fire and Abuelita got hurt and when Esperanza, Mama, Hortensia, Alfonso and Miguel left Aueblita when they went to California.
After a horrible dust storm at the camp in California that Esperanza works at, some of the dust got into Mama's lungs and she got valley fever. That's when Esperanza missed Abuelita and so she worked harder and harder to get money to bring Abuelita to where she was. Then one Esperanza's money goes missing.
When Miguel took Esperanza's money mama suddenly got better and Abuelita came back which Esperanza was really happy about. Mama was alos happy when she saw Abuelita after like half a year.
