Children Ages 8+ • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Victoria Villarreal introduces Adela Ramírez at a dramatic time in her life. First, Villarreal shows the contentment of 12-year-old Adela, who loves Alex, her mother's new husband. She's even happy about welcoming an impending sibling. But then Alex decides he wants to adopt her, and without quite understanding why, Adela is driven to discover who her biological father is. Villarreal allows listeners a view of how Adela's life is upended when she discovers that her father is the famous masked wrestler called Manny "the Mountain" Bravo. Villarreal makes credible the intimacy and warmth of Adela's newfound family and illuminates her decision to take up wrestling to discover where she fits in with her biological father and his family.
