The UC Berkeley Summer Reading List is an annual compilation of recommended (though not required) readings suggested by Cal faculty, staff, and students as a welcome to incoming freshmen and transfer students.
“First Confession is about a Mexican girl and boy who live a privileged life in a small town that intersects with the impoverished world by the Rio Grande river. They experience many firsts, including first lost of innocence, first experience of evil, first mistreatment, first empathy felt towards others, first sin, first confessions, first tragedy, and more.”
