    Ccatchi g to the eye, reminds me of when i was a child in a catholic school. Being the only aborigin

    Title was cat hing to the eye, the storu reminded me of when i was a child being only aboriginal student in the school. I felt like an only child also. Teachers treated me different, alot of times i got away with more then the other students. Maybe because they felt sorry, i dont kbow but this book was a catchy story. Thanks much! Cheers!

    Incredible, will break your heart

    Amazing isn’t a big enough word for American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins. It’s the kind of book you can’t book down, can’t stop reading, but also the kind of book you have to put down every once in a while and take a break, because it is so intense, so overwhelming, so affecting. Lydia and her family have a good life in Acapulco. She’s a bookseller, and one of her customers, Javier, becomes a friend she can discuss books with. But Acapulco is becoming more dangerous each day because of the cartels. And then Lydia and her journalist husband, Sebastián, discover that Javier is the jefe of Los Jardineros, one of the worst Mexican drug cartels. And when Sebastián writes an exposé on Javier, he and the rest Lydia's family except for she and her eight-year old son, Luca are brutally murdered. Lydia has two choices: stay and be murdered, too or try to escape Acapulco before Javier finds them or travel to el norte, the United States and make a new life for herself and Luca. And the journey begins. No matter your politics or past experiences, you cannot but find what Lydia, Luca and the other migrants they encounter on the way heartbreaking. I couldn’t relate to any of the events, but I could feel the fear and hopelessness and anxiety and the staggering bravery and determination needed to try to escape this life for a better one. I was lucky enough to receive an advance audiobook copy of American Dirt from Macmillan Audio. It is read by Yareli Arizmendi, and she is the perfect narrator for this story. Her pace is slow and calm and measured and completely conveys the terror and poignancy and drama. Thanks to Macmillan Audio for giving me the opportunity to experience this wonderful story. All opinions in this review are my own.
