Winter of their Discontent: (Nothing) Changes for Josefina American Girls

    • History

In the last book in the Josefina canon, we find that it is not just
comedies that end in weddings--sometimes tragedies do too. To bring
the Montoyas' story to a close, author Valerie Tripp arranges a
marriage between Papa and Tia Dolores, who will now take on the mantle
of stepmother. While this book finds Josefina pondering the future of
her family, Mary and Allison use this opportunity to consider the
overall arc of the series and what it conveys about nationalism. The
hosts also consider a new line of empowerment Barbies, some important
news coverage, and an Ashanti sighting.
