Seven books to help you not forget Puerto Rico

One title from Electric Lit's list of seven books to keep your focus on Puerto Rico:
When I Was Puerto Rican by Esmeralda Santiago

Santiago’s memoir is in many ways a love letter to Puerto Rico—even though much of the life it describes takes place elsewhere. When I Was Puerto Rican, the first book of a three-part autobiography, explores Santiago’s connection to her island childhood, while also taking an unsparing look at her experience making the transition to New York as a young girl.
