HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE REVIEW:
"In Lizet's story, we have a thrilling, deeply fulfilling journey of a young woman stepping into her own power. This debut novel from Crucet (How to Leave Hialeah, 2009) heralds the birth of a talented novelist to watch."
"Here, perfectly articulated through Lizet, is the experience of being a first-generation child of immigrants in America—the lack of cultural capital, the casually racist comments of fellow students, the facade of campus diversity. “I’d yet to see a Latino professor on the Rawlings campus, though I knew from pictures in the school’s guidebook that there were a few somewhere,” Lizet wistfully notes. Here, too, is worldbuilding at its finest—Crucet crafts a rich setting and supporting characters to go along with her astute cultural analysis."
