Publisher's Summary

Winner of a Pura Belpré Award, this middle grade Cuban American coming-of-age novel is inspired by the author's own experience.
When Julian's parents make the heartbreaking decision to send him and his two brothers away from Cuba to Miami via the Pedro Pan operation, the boys are thrust into a new world where bullies run rampant and it’s not always clear how best to protect themselves.

Brought back memories

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It brought back memories of my childhood as I am also a Pedro Pan immigrant. It was written excellently. This book would be interesting to anyone who loves read a quick paced adventure. Five stars.

It is real

This is real! Immigration for what ever need or want still mirrors hardship! The triumph is strong! As a mother of two boys I could never imagine the pain of making such a decision. As a social worker I respect the perils of all individuals who come to this country to make it great!
