I finished this and thought, "what a great book, I have to talk to someone about it!" I suppose that's the mark of a great story. This was funny and sad, and also uplifting. While not 'hilarious' as it is quoted on the back, it is humorous at moments. There seems to be a touch of magical realism because some of the situations the characters encounter seem so bizarre, but not the extent that I would give it that label. It is a story of adventure as the main character thinks she finds what she wants only to discover herself. A truly wonderful book. ( )

(The 2015 Big Read selection for the Wichita Public Library.)

The story is slow more often than it moves, but when it moves, hang on. The back cover calls it "joyful," which is a bit of a stretch, but it has its gleeful moments. I'm half-seriously planning an analysis of Atomiko as Moses (the staff, you know).

I would like to have understood a little more about the conditions that made the journey necessary. That element seemed glossed over, unserious, tossed in for the sake of moving the plot, rather than an actual problem facing Mexican communities. ( )

Interesting YA novel about a dangerous, illegal journey from Mexico across the border into the U.S. Cultural and identity issues are explored in this gritty novel with interesting characters. ( )

Heard the author on a podcast and fell in love with his use of language and imagery. I can see that coming through in the writing here, but sadly, will need to put this aside to meet some reading obligations. (About 1/4 through September 5, 2021)

O friends, I have come searching for you,

I crossed over flowering fields,

And here, at last, I've found you.

Rejoice.

Tell me your stories.

O friends, I am here.
