I pre-ordered this book because I loved Indivisible so much. It did not disappoint. I love the way this author consistently shows the humanity of immigration. The way family is woven into the fiber of his books is so beautiful. Knowing that every decision Sol made as a 16 yr old was driven by family speaks volumes about the importance of family and community within the Mexican culture. Daniel Aleman is officially an auto-buy author for me. He absolutely doesn’t miss.
