Book recommendations?

I need a new book - just finished "Caramelo" by Sandra Cisneros and can't think of what to work on next...this NEVER happens :) Caramelo was a great read, a little spastic at times, but authentically Mexican feeling in it's use of slang, jargon and interwoven historical elements in a fictional novel.  It reminded me a little of the "Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao", but with less curse words and anger.
