Poor Ana Danced the Tango, a Blaine Ray Spanish Reader
“El año pasado Ana era una chica normal que vivía en Hermosa Beach, California. Iba a West Torrance High. Tenía una familia normal. Tenía un padre normal que se llamaba Robert. Su madre también era normal y se llamaba Ellen..."
We join Ana (from the first Blaine Ray reader, Pobre Ana) after her trip to Mexico. She has changed a great deal, and jumps at another opportunity to travel to Buenos Aires, Argentina. Ana has two main goals: to improve her Spanish and to learn to dance the tango. She makes many new friends in Buenos Aires, and she learns about the Argentine culture.
