Set in war-torn Mexico in 1913, this refugee story resonates with meaning today. Twelve-year-old Petra Luna struggles with her mother's death in childbirth, the kidnapping of her father by soldiers, and the poverty of the lower rungs of the hacienda system. Narrator Ana Osorio fills the character with hope that shines through the horrors of war. Osorio creates memorable character voices for Petra Luna's world, smoothly weaving in the abundant Spanish that vibrantly sets the scenes. Petra Luna dreams of learning to read and finding safety for her family, but first she must get her abuelita, baby brother, and young sister across the desert and the U.S. border.
