The writer for television's "Jane the Virgin," Rafael Agustin, narrates his own experiences as a child in this audiobook about leaving his pampered childhood in Ecuador to join his parents as they search for the American Dream in the 1990s. As young Rafa tries to learn how to reconcile his knowledge of American movies with the real America he has moved to, he learns that his legal status as an immigrant is not as secure as he previously believed. Listeners experience Agustin's real joy and exasperation as he describes learning to be an American. His pacing, emphasis, and inflection give this audiobook the poignancy and the sometimes laugh-out-loud moments it truly deserves. V.B. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2022]
