Naomi's mother wants to kidnap her. Gram is willing to go to the end of the earth to save Naomi, but will that be enough? A quiet life in Lemon Tree, California, becomes a runaway journey to find an estranged father in exotic Oaxaca, Mexico.

Another gem from Pam Munoz Ryan

Just a wonderful audio book --my kids ages 5 and 11 and I all enjoyed it equally. As good as Esperanza Rising and nice to read after that one.
