Blood in the Water

A Story of Friendship during the Mexican War

From the Set Scrapbooks of America

Bonita's grandmother predicts that blood will soon be shed on the soil of Texas. But little does Bonita imagine how much blood there will be--or that the war that takes her brothers might also take away her best friend. Readers are brought back to the Mexican War through Bonita's story and learn about the causes and aftermath of the war, its racial politics, and its effects on one Mexican girl living in Texas.
