Recommended for: Mature middle school girls and up
Read in February, 2007

The protagonist lives with her extended family on a large compound in the Domincan Republic. Her father and her uncle are involved in a revolutionary movement against the harsh dictatorship. That puts her in some terrifying and often life-threatening situations. There are some very sad parts, but overall this is an uplifting story.
