Probably the most engaging part of this book was the first part where Lucia slowly comes to realize that something is very wrong in her country. She has to grow up fast and friendships are tested. Lucia's relationship with her brother is also a strong anchor in the story, one that keeps her hope alive even set adrift in an unfamiliar environment, not knowing if she'll ever see her parents again.
Powerful and touching historical fiction! Find out more about the book at the author's website.
