Just like the lives of the characters they portray, the voices of four narrators mingle and blend in Garza's poignant debut. In a series of interlocking stories about Mexican and Filipinx families, Garza captures the beating heart of Galveston, Texas. In a voice that is by turns bright, optimistic, and resigned, Becca Q. Co narrates the sections focusing on younger women who are navigating family and career. Adriana Sananes's depiction of several family matriarchs is full of wisdom and headstrong humor. André Santana shines as Jess, a high school baseball star who finds his calling working on a fishing boat. Together, these rich performances, a chorus of different tones and accents, create a beautiful tapestry of a complicated city and the people who call it home.
