I had some difficulty reading this book due to some advanced vocabularies that were used. Eva's gift in the story is to tell stories in a Latin American background, women surviving the harsh treatments they encountered. The story is very surprising because you can't guess what's about to happen next. For example, Eva's mother Consuelo choking on a chicken bone and then dying. The story is told from Eva's point of view and while you read it you start feeling bad for her. She's all alone in the world. I found some parts that I dislike in the book, like all the disturbing actions that occur, shooting in the mouth to commit suicide.

In all, it wasn't that bad of a book. I would recommend this book to high level readers though, due to the advanced vocabularies. I enjoyed reading this book, and I'm sure you will too! (:
