Like most people his age Andres is interested in music and his band. But unlike kids in Australia, Andre puts his family at risk when his father is taken away by the Chilean government because of Andre's music. Together with his friends Isa and Beto, Andre is able to find refuge from the Chile government who are killing many innocent people.
Andre is handed an opportunity to change the way of the government and the future of his country but this means withstanding torture and punishment. Overall this is a beautiful and touching story that, depicts bleak circumstances but somehow manages to give you hope.
Full credit to James Watson for the work and effort he is putting in for those he portrays in his book, but there are surely better ways of putting this message across.
I spent most of the time I was reading it being completely bored and would have left it if I did not have to do an English literature exam on it.
I love reading, but I felt this book was so poor, it was not worth my time.
