SUMMARY: Spunky 9-year-old Ana is faced with a very big decision. On the one hand, as her alter-ego, Barrio Grrrl, with her invisible sidekick, Amazing Voice, she's pretty busy preserving justice in the barrio and protecting her neighborhood. On the other hand, in the world where Ana lives with her abuela and misses her mom who is far, far away in Iraq, reality is sneaking up on her. It's time for Ana to decide what’s most important: being a superhero or a girl who works little miracles in real life.
