--The essays explore the quincea era and the coming-of-age ritual from various angles. Prior to 2007, the quincea era received no formal ritual through the Catholic Church, which has since issued one. As such, the role of religion and the Catholic Church in the quincea era celebration is given extensive consideration.

Gender, family status, class, race, as well as the aspects of performance are all discussed as central themes of the celebration. Delving through myriad perspectives, Quincea eras illuminates the festivities form and function in creating social and personal identity within the family and the larger Latino community.
