English, Juana discovers, has lots of THs, big Ws, and long Ls and she finds them all so hard to pronounce.

Besides, why does she have to learn English anyway? Her mother tells Juana that “learning English can change [her] life…in a good way.” And everyone else she asks seems to agree with that – neighbors Mr. and Mrs. Sheldon, shopkeeper brothers Fernando and Hernando Herrera, even Tía Cris.

But it’s when her abuelo tells her she needs to learn English for the family’s trip to Spaceland where Astroman lives in the United States that Juana finally finds a good reason to study English harder.
