Narrator Yareli Arizmendi is the sassy voice of Nina, a single woman living in a border town in Texas. Arizmendi sets a quick pace and a smooth cadence for a story about family, belonging, and government encroachment. She provides authentic pronunciations of the Spanish words that are liberally sprinkled throughout the chapters. Orly, Nina's tween godson, comes to spend the summer in her rural town after his mother unexpectedly dies in Houston. Nina is also sheltering Daniel, a teenager who came across the border illegally and is hiding from cops and gang members. Their lives are the window through which we are given an intimate look at the consequences of migrant trafficking along the southern border of the U.S. M.R. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2019]
