I LOVED the voice of Fabiola in this book, and the realness of the story and situation, as heartbreaking as it is.
Coming of age, immigrant stories are some of my favorites to read. Add in an amazing narrator and some truly phenomenal writing and it's a winner. This book packed an emotional punch. I loved Fabiola and all the other side characters, including her three cousins. A little longer than I thought it needed to be and a short stop ending that felt a smidge abrupt but still so amazing, I gave it 4 and a half stars.
