I really enjoyed this book. The central character was complex enough (and damaged enough) to grab me. I don't know if the author has a real understanding of Hispanic gangs, or if she just faked it ... but I felt like I gained real insights.
The book leaves the door open to a sequel. I hope she writes one soon.

What disappointed you about Hailey's War?
The narrator was bland and not emotional. I got very tired with almost every sentence " I said" or "she said" or "they said" very distracting and annoying. The plot was good but the author should examine the use of describing who is speaking. I have never read or heard a book written this way.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Hailey, she took on a mission and was determined to see it thorough , whether in the US or Mexico. The plot was very good
What didn’t you like about Angela Dawe’s performance?
As stated earlier no emotion and limited number of voices - hard to tell if man or woman. Angela, during an exciting time, did not seem excited.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Disappointment. Title and notes made me think it was a good plot but i struggled after the first 3 chapters.
Any additional comments?
This is a good book , but not for the price. Maybe of value waiting in the doctor's office.
