Luz is at the same time likeable and irratating...I suppose like a lot of young people, however, Abuela (grandma) has never let her down and has raised her single handedly from early childhood, so what was the problem of them going to Mexico. MONEY!!! Luz doesn't think they have enough, Abuela has faith enough to see them thru. Abuela dies suddenly and Luz then decides to take the trip to follow the Monarch Butterflies on their epic journey home.
You learn what happenend to Luz's mother, Abuela's other daughter, the rest of the family, the quirkie characters that Luz forms an attachment to, but most of all you learn about the monarchs and the coming of age of Luz. The power of family that essentially ties us to one another. In Mexico Luz learns more than just about the monarchs, she learns a valuable lesson about family, love and forgiveness. I learned those lessons as well.
I'm not going to give away the plot, but a downer for me was learning about Luz's mother and in true Forrest Gump style, that's all I have to say about that.
Cannot wait for Mary Alice's next novel.
