In Rudolfo Anaya's Bless Me, Ultima, Aunt Ultima selects Antonio as her prodigy due to the innocence and potential found within him that the other siblings do not obtain due to the pressure promoted by the Marez and Luna families.
This is still in the works but I am not sure if I should scratch the other siblings and zoom in on Antonio and what components make up his potential?
Do you think this passes the "so what" factor?
How should I expand more (ex. Anaya's rhetoric, influence of magical realism, components Ultima offers)?
