The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

Hello! My name is Catherine Hernandez (I am the spider-man in the profile picture)and Im from the Dominican Republic. The book I choose is The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junut Diaz (also Dominican) I just recently finish reading this book and i absolutly loved it, mostly because it shows how a seemly insignificant life can represent a whole culture. We are all insignificant and we are all important, depends on how you see it.

The book is set in the Dominican Republic (Baní) and in Patterson, NJ. Its mainly about this nerd fat kid that loves role playng games, sci-fi, writing and girls. We also get to see some of his and his familiy's time in the DR during La Era de Trujillo and in more recent times. 

Here is some brainstorming:
