Reviewed in the United States on May 8, 2020
I first learned of the book after hearing a segment about it with Elizabeth Acevado on the Kojo Nnamdi show. It was incredible to hear directly from the author on the show. After hearing about the book, I decided to purchase and read the book. Two days later, I read the book in three sittings, in one day, over approximately four hours. As a 30-year-old adult, I thought to myself, kids should be reading this book instead of, let's say, The Tempest. Of course, that is just my opinion, take it for what it is. I believe Acevado's book definitely belongs in elementary and junior high school curriculums across the US. I enjoyed all of the book, its imperfections, the character development, and of course, the glimpse if offers between the cultural bridge that exists between so many US Americans and other parts of the world. I say that as a US-born American-Puerto Rican. Cheers three times for the author. Gracias!
