Each chapter begins with a poem that encapsulates the action. It is a beautiful story of family and society, power and helplessness. The pain of being not grown up, yet not quite a child in the Dominican Republic. This is a book of simple, beautiful words, yet the messages of pain and hope are powerful.

Although it was my son's summer reading assignment I enjoyed it completely.
The story is sooo wonderful and well written for young readers. The first 3 chapter was like any other summer reading. It then takes a complete unexpected turn. I still questioned where is this Storting going.
It was too late when realized what direction the writer going. I had completely become vested in these characters in 90 short pages. The following 48 pages flowed so freely to my disappointment.
What a delightful experience. Thanks for sharing.
