La niña de este relato se ha mudado hace poco, con su familia, de México a Brooklyn. El primer día en su nuevo colegio, conoce a una chica norteamericana con la que se entiende de maravilla. Se vuelven mejores amigas. Pero cuando invita a su nueva amiga a cenar en casa con su familia mexicana, le da la impresión de que la chica se siente incómoda. Tal vez no le gusta la comida. O peor aún, tal vez la canción preferida de la familia ―una melodía llena de añoranza y nostalgia― le parece demasiado extraña. Algo parece haber cambiado y ella ya no se siente segura como antes. ¿Cómo será el día siguiente en la escuela?

The girl in this story recently moved with her family from Mexico to Brooklyn. The first day at her new school, she meets an American girl with whom she has a wonderful understanding. They become best friends. But when she invites her new friend to dinner at home with her Mexican family, she gets the impression that the girl is uncomfortable. Maybe you don't like food. Or worse, perhaps the family's favorite song - a melody full of longing and nostalgia - seems too strange to him. Something seems to have changed and she no longer feels safe as before. What will the next day at school be like?
