Listeners will fly through a blend of folklore, science fiction, and pop culture that makes for a thrilling and fast-paced story addressing the impacts of racism and abuse. Narrator Inés del Castillo's husky voice enlivens Sia Martinez, an engaging Mexican-American teenager. Sia's mother was deported by ICE and died while crossing the Sonoran Desert to return to Arizona. Listeners will feel all of Sia and her father's grief. One night, while lighting candles for her mother in the desert, Sia discovers a stranger--gruff-voiced new kid Noah--and they become friends, and then more. The story revolves around themes of friendship, romance, trust--and a sudden twist that changes everything. E.E.C. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2020]
