    A compelling Story

    A great deal of hype and controversy surrounds the publication Jeanine Cummins' "American Dirt", and I was keen to read the book to make my own assessment. Lydia and her 8 year old son Luca are the only survivors of a Mexican cartel’s hit on their immediate and extended family. Desperate to escape Acapulco and the cartel, mother and son go on a harrowing journey towards the Mexican-American border in the hope they will find safety and a new life in the United States. Along the way they meet teenaged sisters Soledad and Rebeca. They pay a smuggler to take them across the border and experience various hardships along the way. Eventually the four migrants settle in Maryland, where relatives of Soledad and Rebeca live. While I did not find this book completely satisfying, “American Dirt” is a compelling read depicting the current migrant experience.

    American Dirt

    From the opening sentence to the last word, this book pulled me in. I worried when they were running for trains, looking for places to stay which would be safe for them, felt both the dryness and torrential rain in the desert. The writer moves along with stunning swiftness from the safe home into the terror of running from a drug lord.amazing book
